Historical background


PIEFORTS

Piedfort is a coin with a thickness greater than normal, generally double, sometimes quadruple. It is struck originally to be a model for the various mints. This tradition has continued even if recent strikes no longer serve the same purpose. Depending on the face values and the vintages, the piedfort can be made in common metal, silver, gold as well as platinum..
