    1670-A French Colonies Five Sols, MS62
    Toned and Satiny, Martin 9-I

    1670-A 5 Sol French Colonies 5 Sols MS62 PCGS. M. 9-I, W-11605, Breen-256. Ex: Troy Wiseman Collection. Breen (1988) classified this issue under "coinages intended for French America." Louis XIV authorized the production of these pieces on February 19, 1670. According to Bowers (Whitman Colonial Encyclopedia), 200,000 examples of the silver 5 sols denomination were struck, although most were later melted. Surviving examples are scarce overall, and all of the individual 21 known varieties are decidedly rare. This Mint State coin is well struck in the centers, unlike many other pieces seen. A satiny dove-gray example that offers glimpses of russet and cobalt-gray peripheral toning. Listed on page 47 of the 2022 Guide Book.
    Ex: The Troy Wiseman Collection, Part Two / FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2007), lot 71.
