Copper alloy English jetton with geometrical tracery on the obverse similar to that on the window of the vestry at Merton College, Oxford, which dates from c.1310. The pictorial obverse is contemporary with sterling bust jettons dating from c.1280-1343 like Mitchiner p.116, no.243, but the closest reference is the 'Anglo-Gallic' jetton (now known to be English) recorded in Barnard (1981) on page 101, pl.II, fig.35, no.35, which is not dated and where the obverse is not illustrated but appears similar from the description. Mernick reference 4f.3.6

Copper alloy rose and orb type jetton of Hans Krauwinckel II (Master 1586, died March 1635). It appears to be of the rose and orb type with the orb in tressure design on the obverse and three crowns alternating with three fleurs de lis on the reverse. The inscriptions are very worn but the end of the reverse legend: *HANNS [KRAVWIN]CKEL IN NV (which is normally the obverse legend) is NV, suggesting that the obverse legend is probably GOTES SEGEN MACHT REIC.

Copper-alloy Flemish jetton, minted in Tournai, probably copying jettons of Louis II de Male (1346-1384), Count of Flanders. This combination of obverse and reverse on a jetton seem only to be found in England which suggests that they were used by Flemish merchants while negotiating to buy English wool and they remained here because there might have been a Flemish merchant colony in England similar to the Hanseatic merchants (Peter Mernick pers comm). Obverse: Rampant lion with incurved tail within a circle surrounded by the inscription +OMNIA.DAT.DOMINVS Reverse: double-strande…

Copper alloy French stock jetton, struck in Tournai c.1415-1497, by Puerar Durar, who may have come from the town of Leiden as his inscriptions are in Flemish, but only the name survives on the obverse as half of the jetton is missing. Probably minted after 1423 when Charles VII (1422-1461) introduced the silver Blanc à la coronelle (coin). Mitchener 622.

Copper alloy Nuremberg stock 'Lion of St Mark' jetton. The lion is nimbate and entirely within the inner circle, including the halo, and there is a rosette between the lion's feet, on the obverse. On the reverse, the imperial orb surmounted by a cross on the reverse has no pellets, annulets or elements outside the tressure. The inscriptions are fictitious, and illegible on the obverse but the reverse reads: +[MEL] BODVL BODV [...] which matches well with anonymous Nuremberg stock jettons illustrated in Mitchener (1988) on page 361, nos.1103-1104, which date from c.1500-1570.

Copper alloy French shield jetton, struck in Tournai c.1417-1497, after 1423 when Charles VII (1422-1461) introduced the silver Blanc à la coronelle (coin), and late in the 15th century as it is a thick 'piefort' or piedfort, which means heavy foot, jetton. The introduction of the thick piefort jettons during the 15th century appears to have resulted from the popularisation of a new method for performing the calculations for manual accountancy. A collection of stationary jettons which were heavier like this example were issued as reference points for the lighter mobile jettons in ord…

Copper alloy jetton, Shield of France modern type with three fleurs de lis within a spade-shaped shield on the obverse, struck at the Paris mint between 1418 and 1437 during the reigns of Charles VI (1380-1422) and Charles VII (1422-1461) of France. The obverse looks more like Mitchiner 457, produced during the reign of Charles VI, with leafy ornaments above and beside the shield, but the reverse is like Mitchiner 531a, produced during the reign of Charles VII, with the tressure of arches alternating with triangles which have a rosette on either side.
