This essay focuses on the ancient regime’s monetary practices and on the role that conspicuous consumptions, gold or silver currencies, and account money played in that field. The first part examines how the possibility to change precious objects into coins (by melting, pawning, or bartering them) allowed the latter to perform monetary functions. The second part analyses how these practices were facilitated also by the attempts to maintain the technical fungibility among these objects and coins, while the national account money was the means it had to explicit the link between value and prices.
Keywords: Account money; Commodity currencies; Cash equivalent goods; Conspicuous consumptions; Thing biographies.
