Token: France Pierre le Marchante Saint Manvieu  1627
Token: France Pierre le Marchante Saint Manvieu 1627

This is a copper token (jeton) used for gifts, games, commerce, counting, and the like from the town of Saint Manvieu in northwestern France. 'Pierre le Marchante' (Peter the merchant) is proudly displayed on the side with the helmet and coat of arms. On the other side AETERNITATI (eternity) encircles two mountains topped with flaming hearts.

The jeton in our picture is in very good condition, with all inscriptions and devices very clear. The eye appeal is good. It sold for 40 euros (about 50 US dollars) during a 2011 auction by Jean Elsen et ses Fils in Brussels. It might sell for more today.

Very approximately, values for this jeton run like this:

worn: $10 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $25
well preserved: $80

These are catalog values and must be adjusted to obtain actual buy and sell values. See our Important Terminology page for a full explanation.

CoinQuest thanks Jean Elsen for use of his coin photo. It's a nice one!
