Notes: Assignats were issued during the French Revolution after the confiscation of church and aristocratic properties as a way to help sustain the French economy. Subject to meteoric inflation, they were withdrawn in 1796. This print is a copy of the one that appeared in the Tableaux de la Révolution française, where the authors maintained that the assignats had ensured the economic survival of the French Revolutionary state.
