Please note:
The medal described above is also called ‘Coup de chapeau’ (hats off), it was struck in France but commemorates events that occurred in Italy.
The first version was by Jean Varin (1596–1672) and it was certainly struck after 1642 (Mazarin became Cardinal on 16 December 1641). It is generally known that most medals made in France are reproduced using the original die, but for some of these it was not possible because they were broken or deteriorated, which is probably the case with Varin's die. The version offered here is the successive one, bearing some amendments such as: the date (1630), the initials D. F. and a different inscription with some details from the scene corrected on the reverse side.
Artist: Jean Baptiste Dufour (1637–? )
According to ‘La Medaille au temps de Louis XIV’ it appears that all the dies signed D. or D. F. have been made by him between 1673 and 1695. The medal was therefore minted during this period.
