    About this item

    This is a nice medieval gold coin issued by the French King Charles VI (the Mad) 1380 - 1422 A.D.

    The obverse depicts the royal arms of France surmounted with a crown. The obverse legend reads: + KAROLVS : DЄI : GRACIA : FRAnCORVM : RЄX, (Charles by the Grace of God King of France)

    The reverse of the coin displays Floriated cross in a quadrilobe, the legend reads: + XPC * VIИCIT * XPC * RЄGИAT * XPC * IИPЄRAT, (Christ overcomes, Christ reigns, Christ commands)

    This coin would have been minted in France during the Hundred Years War with England, it came from a hoard of gold coins probably buried for safety during this conflict.

    It is a great looking coin that is full of history and character!
