Symbolics of the Three Orders gathered in the revolutionary medal. Through the numismatic production of the first years of the Revolution, the article follows a theme which was then rather fashionable in this sphere as well as in iconography : symbolics of the Three Orders, as one can follow it from the lower and humble position of the Third Estate, bearing as Atlas the weight of kingdom, to the stages of its emancipation, marked by the great days of 1789. Portrayed individuals or emblematic objects get organised into the dialectic game of the three components, face to face or gathered.
