Token: France Jeton Veni Vidi Vici (Louis XIV) 1668

This is a jeton or counting token from the time of King Louis XIV (LUD XIIII) who ruled France from 1643 to 1715. While all have the same design, some varieties of this jeton display the words and date 'L' ORDINAIRE DES CVERRES 1668' at the bottom of the reverse (the side with the lion.) Please see our general page on jetons [Press Here] for background information on these wonderful collectibles.

Just about all these jetons are pretty much worn to a frazzle. If you can find one in decent shape, you have certainly found something worthwhile. Here are typical catalog values for this Veni, Vidi, Vici (Julius Ceasar: I came, I saw, I conquered) jeton:

worn: $2 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $7
well preserved: $30
