Historical background


LOVE AND MARRIAGE

It was customary to give a Treizain once during the wedding mass. It was blessed and Treizain meant entering a community property married. The Treizain subsequently became a medal or token of marriage, so named in honor of Jesus Christ and the Twelve Apostles. This practice persisted into the first half of the twentieth century. The reference book on the subject is the work of Jules Florange, Love and marriage in numismatics, Moulins, 1936 now replaced by Henri Térisse, The Wedding Coin, Argenton-sur-Creuse 2008.
