Commentary


Ce type monétaire existe avec un E romain à BRITANNIE (comme sur cet exemplaire) et parfois avec un E lunaire. Boudeau donne ces deniers à Pierre Mauclerc (1213-1237). Ils ont depuis été réattribués à la période Jean Ier, Jean III (1286-1341). Des exemplaires étaient présents dans le dépôt monétaire de Plounévez-Lochrist (Cf. Dumas, RN 1964)..

Historical background


BRITTANY - DUCHY OF BRITTANY - JOHN II, ARTHUR II AND JOHN III - ANONYMOUS COINAGE

(1286-1341)

The appearance of the house of Dreux (1137-1341) is characterized by the presence of the triangular and then square crest of Dreux in the free quarter of Brittany. Many anonymous Breton coins were struck between 1286 and 1341 under the dukes Jean II, Arthur II and Jean III.
