A rare and uncirculated coinage issue of the French Revolutionary period of L'AN III (1791). Issued by the Caisse de Bonne Foi (Foy) and the scarcer of the two general types struck. The lesser valued type, with the helmeted portrait of Minerva, can also be seen here in the Moneta Museum at this: [ link ]
This 3 Sols Monnaies de Confiance coin features a number of Revolutionary symbols that bear some explanation. The tablet, seen often, here proclaims "DROI DE L'HOMME ARTI V" [The Rights of Man Article 5]. The baby is recognized as the 'Genie of France' and as a token coinage it states "PAYABLE EN ECHANGE D'ASSIGNATS" which meant that when the time was right this 3 Sols denomination could be exchanged for the paper Assignats, which nobody really wanted. It's a one year type of 1791. There are five varieties depicted in Reynaud.
