World Coins - Belgium - 1860 - Pattern (Essai) 20 Centimes

Dated 1860 AD

Obv: profile bust with L'UNION FAIT LA FORCE and LEOPOLD PREMIER legends and date below. Rev: lion with VINGT CENTIMES ROYAUME DE BELGIQUE legend. 6.87 grams. Near as struck; small scratch across neck.

Literature
Dupriez-775.

Footnotes
This coin is very different in many respects from the 1860 currency issue 20 centimes; the bust faces left and has the name and title of Leopold as an inner legend. To the reverse, the denomination is given as VINGT CENTIMES rather than 20 Cs and the legend is very different too. Another specimen was sold by Heritage Auctions (1 August 2013, part lot 63019) and XRF analaysis confirms it is struck in cupro-nickel (78.8% copper, 20.9% nickel).
