    Impressive 1670-A French Colonies 5 Sols, MS62

    1670-A 5SOL French Colonies 5 Sols MS62 PCGS. Struck at the Paris Mint, the 1670-A 5 Sols silver pieces circulated along side American colonial issues and other foreign coinages in the various French settlements of the new world. The coinage issue of 1670 included authorization to produce 200,000 of these 5 sols, along with 40,000 pieces of copper. Louis XIV authorized these coins and his portrait appears on the obverse.
    This pleasing Mint State piece is fully lustrous with light pearl-gray surfaces surrounded by deeper steel toning at the borders. The surfaces are attractive with only a few abrasions that are consistent with the grade. Population: 3 in 62, 0 finer (4/08). Listed on page 50 of the 2009 Guide Book. (NGC ID# 2AXH, PCGS# 158627)
