Numismatists and those interested in the history of money have always been fascinated by an episode in the late 17th century when the Intendant of New France, Jacques de Meulles responded to a shortage of usable money. He took a set of cards, and with a stroke of his pen turned them into currency. The King of France communicated his displeasure, but New France did this again with several more issues. This “playing card money” is behind the commemoration of this 4-coin sterling silver set issued by the Royal Canadian Mint from 2008-2009. This is the only set we have in stock; the price is $399.95 plus applicable taxes. We are accepting orders by phone at 1-888-244-9999 and on our website [scroll down and click on the price associated with this set].
