Sou d'or (Solidus), 1 A

Obverse legend
Reverse legend

DN HNVVDOVSNH AVC (Laureate and draped bust of Louis The Pious on the right, the two first letters N and the letter S retrograde).

NVNVS DIVINVM (circular and anti-clockwise legend around a cross surrounded by a circle made up of dots, the letter S reversed compared to the other letters).

Photo of the copy preserved at the Bibliothèque Nationale de France (public domain), link to the page of their website showing the photo of the coin:;2.


The letters following the number (1 A, 1 B..) classify the coins according to their quality of representation.


Obverse legend copied: DN HLVDOVVICVS IMP AVG

Reverse legend copied: NVMVS DIVINVM


I classify this coin in fake Frisians, due to the errors of legend and the retrograde sense on the reverse.
