Historical background


LANGUEDOC (STATES OF ...)

The Estates of Languedoc were made up of the archbishops and bishops of the province, nobles and delegates from the Third Estate appointed by the municipal bodies. Made up of working commissions, the States had the particular role of managing the accounts and distributing the direct royal taxes advanced in the form of a subscription by this country of states.. They also organized the means of communication through public works contracts. The tokens of the States were originally intended to be distributed to the members of the office of the account then, this distribution was extended to the members of the office of the recruits, to the president of the States, to the syndics general of the seneschalses, to the clerk for the king, to the stock exchange treasurer, etc.. They could also be given as a gratuity or as a tribute to external personalities.. Made in Paris with vintages between 1634 and 1790, these tokens were distributed in the form of purses of around one hundred tokens. The most recent "Directory of tokens and medals of the Estates General of Languedoc" was written by M. Gérard Pinto, Notebooks of the bibliophile agreement of Montpellier, 1993.
