Historical background


TRUST (COINS ...)

(1791-1793)

Brothers make Monneron made in England by Matthew Boulton, thanks to the Watt steam engine, parts 2 and 5 floors in large quantities in the Soho shop in Birmingham, from the end of 1791. These currencies need should have the monetary supply shortage that prevailed in France and their technical and aesthetic quality was much higher than the official mediocre contemporary productions in base metals. In March 1792, the Monneron Pierre went bankrupt and fled. His brother Augustin took over the business, but a law of 3 May 1792 prohibits the manufacture of private currencies. In September, a decree prohibits the marketing of spare confidence. These coins circulated in fact necessary until the end of 1793.
