Coinage of 1717 - 1720

The copper 6 and 12 deniers of 1717 were authorized by an edict of King Louis XV dated December 1716, to be struck at Perpignan (mintmark Q). The order could not be carried out, for the supply of copper was too brassy. A second attempt in 1720 also failed, probably for the same reason.
