Ecu de Six Livres
The name given to a French silver coin struck in the eighteenth century and so called on account of the branches of laurel which surround the sheild of fleurs de lis. In France this coin is called the Grand Ecu or Laubthaler. Under Louis XVI there were varieties counterstamped for Berne in Switzerland. The type was copied in Prussia.
