Historical background


(13th century)

Cahors depended on the Count of Toulouse. Feudal coinage began in 1090 with a denarius from Géraud II de Gourdon (1068-1112) and anonymous coinage could begin at the beginning of the 11th century. It was replaced from 1208 by coins in the names of bishops Guillaume de Cardaillac (1208-1234), Raymond de Cornil (1280-1293) and finally Hugues Géraud (1311-1316). Guillaume de Cardaillac conceded the benefit of the Mint in 1212 and 1224, but the town does not seem, according to A. Dieudonné, to have had the right to monetize.
