"duty paid" caps by way of guarantee

"Ever wondered about those coloured-coded tops on the foils, or capsules, of French wines bought in France? Known officially as capsules représentatives des droits (CRD) or capsules-congés, they prove that tax has been paid on the wine and that it may be sold commercially. French wines bought outside the hexagon don't usually have these capsule tops because the duty is not paid within France. (The capsule features Marianne, the historic symbol of France, also used on some French stamps and coins.)"

I'm not sure what is being guaranteed, or what the "actes de cautionnement" are for, but that is presumably apparent from the wider context, which you haven't given.

Or foils, or capsules, as in my reference.
