Your "crown" is probably a 1/2 Louis d'Or, which, IIRC, is about the size of 
a U.S. copper penny.


I'm not sure how thick a mid-17th-century half-Crown is, and I'm also
curious as to what La Varenne was actually referring to, because it
could be an assumption of the translator or some specific knowledge
that La Varenne's equivalent coin or measurement would be the same...
