Saint Sulpice


Recommended Posts

A silver jeton issued in 1713 during the reign of Louis XIV for the Charity Commissioners of the Church and parish of St Sulpice, Paris.

 

Obverse shows (presumably) one of the Commissioners doling out charity to the needy in the parish

Nice jeton. Interesting that those receiving the handouts are all women and children. Much remains the same over all this time.

This one was struck in 1756 for both the Charity Commissioners and the Church Wardens
