Lower bound Nmin = 102

Reference Jaap Top
Curves of genus 3 over small finite fields
Indag. Math. (N.S.) 14 (2003), no. 2, 275–283
Comments
This number of points is reached by the curve C : (3*x^2+y^2)^2+a*x*(x^2-y^2)*z+b*z^4=0 with a=4 and b=6.

Its Jacobian is isogenous to E^3 with trace(E)=-14. Its automorphism group is isomorphic to S_3.

Upper bound Nmax = 102

Comments
This upper bound follows from Theorem 1 (p. 89) of the cited reference, because 59 = 7^2 + 7 + 3.
