Paris Court of Justice

Recommended Posts

This jeton was struck for Jean Antoine de Mesmes, the then President of the Court of Justice, in 1713.


The reverse of this jeton normally appears in combination with the bust of the king of France and issued for the Court Prosecutors. This one however was specific to De Mesmes with his coat of arms obverse. It would have been one of a number of silver jetons presented to him in a purse as payment for his service in office for that year.
