English ’Arms of Evreux’ Jeton https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/coins/tokens-jetons-and-medalets/english-jetons/english-arms-of-evreux-jeton-50724.html Wed, 13 Apr 2016 00:00:00 GMT English jetons English ’Arms of Evreux’ Jeton  
Description: An English ’Arms of Evreux’ jeton (large size, ’Wardrobe Counter’) of the second half of the 14th century.

It has been suggested that this type was issued when Charles II, King of Navarre and Count of Evreux, visited London in 1355 and 1377, but it is equally likely that the design was merely borrowed from a form popular in Normandy.

The central indentation (or piercing) is a characteristic of English jetons of this period. It is believed to have been done to prevent them from being silvered and passed off as coins.
