PCGS MS62 (42254642). De minimes marques de manipulation. Jolie patine de collection. Superbe à Fleur de coin.
Par Peter Paul Werner à Nuremberg. Cette médaille [classé en jeton par J. Lecompte] commémore le combat du 8 juin 1755 dans le Golfe du Saint-Laurent qui sera l’événement déclencheur de la déclaration de guerre de 1756, marquant le début de la guerre de Sept Ans entre la France alliée à l’Autriche et l’Angleterre alliée à la Prusse. Après plusieurs affrontements des forces coloniales françaises et britanniques en 1754, le gouvernement britannique décide d’envoyer des troupes occuper le Fort Duquesne construit par les Français, près de l’actuelle Pittsburgh en Ohio. La France, avertie, décide d’envoyer elle aussi des troupes de renfort par un convoi de dix-huit bâtiments sous le commandement du chef d’escadre Dubois de La Motte. Trois vaisseaux armés, quatre frégates et onze vaisseaux de ligne servant de transports de troupes partent en direction du Québec. Face à eux, la Royal Navy envoie deux flottes d’interception dirigées par le vice-amiral Boscawen, dans le Saint-Laurent, et par le vice-amiral Francis Holburne. La majeure partie du convoi français réussit à passer, à l’exception de trois navires, l’Alcide (64 canons), le Lys (22 canons) et le Dauphin Royal (22 canons) qui sont interceptés par les vaisseaux britanniques. Après cinq heures de combat, l’Alcide et le Lys abaissent leurs pavillons tandis que le Dauphin Royal réussit à s’échapper pour Louisbourg. Agression délibérée ou acte de guerre en temps de paix, cette attaque britannique provoque une émotion considérable à Paris où la Bourse s’effondre, par suite des menaces sur le commerce colonial. La propagande anglaise rapporte une victoire, toutefois peu glorieuse car l’essentiel du convoi français est passé. Le 29 août 1756, l’attaque de la Saxe par le Roi de Prusse Frédéric II entraînera une partie des pays d’Europe dans la Guerre de Sept Ans
America-Canada (French Colonies), Louis XV (1715-1774). Medal, commemorating a June 8, 1755 battle, the beginning of the Seven Years' War. By Peter Paul Werner 1755, Nuremberg. Obv. SALVS IN FLVCTIBVS. On shore, Mercury standing face-on, his hand raised to his ear to listen, between two vessels seen from the rear, one with the Irish flag, the other with a French flag; in exergue : STATVS RERVM and P. P. W. signature. Rv. SED MOTOS PRAESTAT COMPONERE FLVCTVS. By the ocean, a crowned allegory with a scepter, seated left on a sea-horse, a cornucopia at her feet, holding a temple, on the other side a Native American on the right, her foot on an alligator, holding a bow and arrow; in exergue: SVB EXITVM ANNI MDCCLV. Lec.97a = cet ex. - Frossard 52 - Betts 392 ; Silver - 14,54 g - 35 mm - 12 h. PCGS MS 62. Top Pop: The finest graded! Provenance: Jean Lecompte collection. This coin illustrated in the Jean Lecompte book, Monnaies et jetons des colonies française (The French Colonies Coins and Tokens) Gadoury editions, 2007, pp. 164-169 Slight handling marks. Beautiful patina. Extremely fine to Fleur de coin. This medal [classified as a token by J. Lecompte] commemorates the June 8, 1755 battle in the Gulf of St. Lawrence: the event precluding the 1756 declaration of the Seven Years' War between France and Austria against England and Prussia. In 1754, following several clashes between French and British Colonial forces, the British government sent troops to occupy Fort Duquesne, near present-day Pittsburgh, Ohio. France was alerted and sent eighteen ships under the command of the squadron-chiefs Dubois de La Motte with reinforcement troops. Three armed vessels, four frigates and eleven ships of the line serving as troop transporters set out for Quebec. The English Royal Navy sent two fleets to intercept the French, led by vice-admiral Boscawen and Vice-Admiral Francis Holburne. After five hours of fighting, the French ships Alcide (64 guns) and the Lys (22 guns) lowered their flags. The Dauphin Royal (22 guns) escaped to Louisbourg. Most of the French convoy managed to escape the British fleet. This deliberate aggression was an act of war. The British attack caused panic in Paris where the stock market collapsed because of the threat to Colonial trade. English propaganda reported a victory, however inglorious, since most of the French convoy passed safely. On August 29, 1756, the attack on Saxony by the Prussian King Frederick II led to the Seven Years' War.
