Commentary


Réputé le plus noble et le plus excellent, le troisième corps des marchands, les merciers, étaient des marchands proprement dits ; ils n'avaient pas de fabriques, tout au plus ajoutaient-ils quelques façons dernières aux marchandises qu'ils mettaient en vente. Ce sont des merciers que l'on trouve engagés dans les grandes et fameuses entreprises de navigation aux Indes qui ont marqué aux XVIe et au XVIIe siècles. Les trois navires rappellent l’appartenance des merciers au troisième corps des marchands. Ce jeton fait partie de la série des Corporations.

Historical background


CORPORATIONS

In Rome, artisan groups existed: forming a college under the protection of a deity, with a house and a common fund. In medieval Europe, probably from religious brotherhoods were formed between economic groupings called Hanse merchants or ghilde. With the development of trade, the craftsmen organized in body or professional communities that grouped all those employed in the same profession: masters, journeymen or apprentices. To enter the body, it was necessary to "swear" the trade. In addition, there existed free trades that could be enjoyed by all. Each body was headed by a collegial body responsible for enforcing the rules of trade, to protect the business from the competition and lead the fraternal benefit society. At the end of the seventeenth century, the king began to sell as hereditary offices as a juror and corporate trustees which provoked serious financial difficulties at a time when corporations are met in addition to more new economic development requirements Industry and business concentration. This is also in England that corporations disappeared spontaneously because of the industrial revolution. Corporations will be deleted in France in 1791 by the Constituent Assembly.
