France 1713W demi ecu rev DSLR.jpg

This type, called the demi-écu aux trois couronnes, was struck 1709-15 in France in large quantities, and is the last half écu to bear the bust of Louis XIV. It was succeeded by the demi-écu vertugadin of Louis XV. Gadoury prices this date from Lille as slightly scarce. The SCWC has deleted this type entirely from its listings.

Recorded mintage: unknown but slightly scarce.

Specification: 15.30 g, .917 fine silver, 32-35 mm diameter, edge lettered DOMINE SALVUM FAC REGEM, designed by Joseph Roéttiers.
