Historical background


The Piéfort is a currency having a higher than normal, usually double, quadruple thickness sometimes. She was struck originally to be a model for the different workshops. This tradition continued even though recent strikes no longer serve the same purpose. According denominations and vintages, the Piéfort can be made current metal, silver, gold as well as platinum..
