Commentary


Charles le Téméraire se plaçait sous la protection de saint André qui, pour ne pas être crucifié comme le Christ, avait fait placer la croix de son supplice en diagonale. Les florins de Bourgogne de la première émission ne furent frappés que pour le Brabant (Louvain) et la Flandre (Bruges).
