Fr. 122, C-28.2. Small finely modeled bust of Elizabeth facing right with her hair pulled tightly back over a tiara, with St. Petersburg mintmark below. Reverse: Standard design, a cross of four shields. Well struck with near full remaining mint luster. Jacques Antoine Dassier (1715-59), the son of famous medallist and coin engraver Jean Dassier (1676-1763), was in his own right a leading luminary of 18th century medallic art. From 1740 to 1745, he was assistant engraver at the Royal Mint in London. After a 3 year sojourn in Russia, where he produced the dies for Elizabeth's silver rouble and her gold ten roubles, he died in 1759 at Copenhagen. His designs are among the most interesting and attractive of the period and now much in demand. Extremely rare and one of the finest quality specimens in private hands.
