Oh yes, very sorry for the ambiguity! I did not want to offend anyone. Just to explain what I wanted to say: that's true, the value of the coin is 12 Sols. But just to say it is not call 12 sols. If you find a "2 sols" Louis XVI, the value is 24 Deniers (1 sol =12 Deniers), but a coin of 24 Deniers doesn't exist. If you search 12 Sols Louis XVI on Google you won't find it.


I didn't want of course go up against an expert identification, but I'm French and I have little knowledge about the coins we can find in my country ::g
