One of a series of interesting Masonic medals struck circa 1795 by the chapter of the Lodge of Perfect Equality in Rouen depicting imagery rich in symbolism.

Such as on this piece, with two skeletons, one crowned, standing between columns labeled as 'J' on the left (for Jachin Pillar symbolizing King Solomon) and 'B' on the right (Boaz, symbolizing King David).

The piece itself is the nicest we know of, with lovely toning in shades of cobalt blue, sea green and gold.

This coin is from the CRO archives and is not currently available for sale.
