Page from a book with an engraving showing both faces of two coins or medals. The first has three figures on a boat at sea, and a shield, on one side, and a man with shield and sword riding a horse-sea serpent chimera on the other. The second has a ship on one side and a woman with what may be an anchor on the other. The text below and on verso describes various coins, in French.
