Another in my series of Revolution medals and coins. A gorgeous example of F. Montagny's work. Here, what may be Hercules sits, with broken sword, lamenting after slaying a serpent. Translated French is "Evil Genius Defeated 23 24 February 1848". Reverse, clearly Hercules with club, lion skin bundle of rods (fasces, Roman war implement and symbol of authority and later, unity in strength). The reverse legend translates as "Unity in Strength". This Hercules design appeared much earlier on a French jeton and was used again by Matthew Boulton for his two designs for the Monneron brothers' emergency Sols during the French Revolution. See Moneta Museum> France for examples. Edge is plain except for a tint hallmark an the word 'JUIVRE'.
