France Liard  1643 to 1715
France Liard 1643 to 1715

Just about all of these old liards from Louis XIV (L XIIII) are pretty worn and beat up. If you find one in decent condition, it is a valuable piece. The worn ones are not too valuable.

There are dozens and dozens of mint marks and 'privy marks' associated with these coins. To get a thorough listing, you must consult a coin catalog. (Most libraries have them.) The crowned L mint mark that requester Hicks mentions is from Lille and is generally more rare than other mint marks. The catalogs list Mr. Hicks' coin at $60 US dollars in average circulated (VF-20) condition.

We can give only rough approximations in this CoinQuest forum. Here are typical catalog values averaged across all dates and marks:

worn: $12 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $75
well preserved: $400

Catalog values are inflated values. See our Important Terminology page for an thorough explanation.

Thanks for the news on the coin, i'd taken it to several dealers in the London city area and none knew what it's value would be. thanks again. - David Hicks
Neat coin. With attractive eye appeal and (hopefully) not too much wear, your coin will be valuable. One that sold for $20 is at this eBay link [Press Here]. If yours looks better, it will be worth more. - CoinQuest (Paul)
