Auction Highlight

The Justitia Medal

A very rare Gold medal of Louis XIII by Guillaume Dupré

This medal of King Louis XIII was cast in 1623 by Guillaume Dupré, Premier sculpteur du Roi and commemorates the end of the first Huguenot rebellion that took place between 1620 and 1622 in southwest France.

What’s really exceptional, is that this medal is only the second specimen known to exist in Gold and it is missing in all important Museum collections worldwide.

Our video presents the characteristics of this medal, like its iconography, its rarity, its historical and numismatic importance, its artistic merit and symbolic power.

A small group of exceptional medals with prestigious provenance

This medal is part of a small group of exceptional medals assembled at the beginning of the 20th Century by the famous art collector, numismatist and benefactress Martine, Comtesse de Béhague, 1870-1939.

It will be offered for sale in our coming Lugdunum auction taking place in later spring 2021.

The consignor has generously decided to donate the proceeds of the sale of this medal to support the reconstruction and restoration of the Cathedral Notre-Dame de Paris.
