This very rare ducat was struck after the first International Monetary Conference, held in Paris in 1867. The initiative proposed at this assembly was the adoption of a single gold standard, decimalisation and overall international coordination of various currencies. Hence the present gold piece, bearing the dual denominations of DUCAT and ONE HUNDRED PENCE, meeting all three of the Conferences criteria. Due to the difficulties concerned with the pegging of international currencies and the relative values of gold, these initiatives never entered circulation.

Thomas Graham, master of the Mint from 1855 until his death in 1869, was an eminent chemist, renowned for his pioneering work on dialysis and the diffusion of gases (Grahams Law). His interest in metallurgy prompted the striking of coins in various metals and establishing their reaction to gases, including the absorption of hydrogen gas by palladium. According to his calculations this piece is said to contain 900 times its volume in hydrogen.
