Nicholas Briot (1579 - 1646) was born at Damblain in Lorraine. He was one of the chief engravers to the Paris Mint during the reign of Louis XIII and developed an improvement in the balance for striking coins. Briot arrived in England in 1625 and in 1633 he was appointed Chief Engraver to the Royal Mint. During the Civil War, he settled at Oxford and lived there until his death. It has been said that Nicholas Briot's dies for coins and medals were gems of medallic art.
