In an attempt to address perennial coin shortages in France’s North American colonies, Louis XIV ordered the production of three denominations in 1670, including the “double d’amerique” (a base-metal coin), a 5-sol piece, and a 15-sol piece. The “double” was never issued, and the others proved unpopular since they could not be used to pay taxes.
