Historical background


LYON - LYON CONSULATE

The series of consular fees Lyon dates back to 1624, when distributed for the first time as this honor tokens to members, officers and characters whose Consulate had to reward merit. The first distributions are intermittent and they become regular until 1652 which seems to be the rule adopted distribution of money tokens at the end of two years each deanery. Honorary witness more than pay these fees were consuls (also called aldermen) a souvenir of their office and the opportunity to represent their arms. By cons, for the secondary characters, tokens used gratification and they often prefer to be paid in cash. For major characters as the steward or archbishops, tokens were accumulated and enriched the family silver. The number of grant recipients, set at nine in 1652, continues to grow and 900 tokens, distributions reach 4. 400 chips in 1745. The copper tokens for employees of the Consulate are struck by uncertain number. Burning these chips is mostly the work of Mint Engraver Lyon, eg Clair I Jacquemin or Aimé Jacquemin while their production is entrusted to the Mint Medal has the exclusive privilege of hits from 1672. Many studies focus on the series of consular fees, the most recent and best documented is that of Jean Tricou, consular fees Lyon, Paris, Bourgey 1955.
