Jacques-Jean Barre (3 August 1793 in Paris-10 June 1855 in Paris) was the general engraver at the Monnaie de Paris between 1842 and 1855. In this position, he engraved and designed French medals, the Great Seal of France, bank notes and postage stamps, as well as the first Swiss coinage which was initially minted there.
His name is Jacques-Jean Barre but is often incorrectly labelled as 'Jean-Jacques', as it is the more common use of the name.
His two sons, artists themselves, succeeded him at the post of general engraver:
