12 Florins 9 Sols 1795 Geneve

My most fun denomination given in Roman numerals. At the time it was 12 sols for one florin, so the denomination can also be read as 12 3/4. A pity this is not given on the coin as it would be the only one I've ever seen to include numbers 1, 2, 3 and 4

The reason for this denomination was the same as for the Lübeck coin. The size is similar also.
