Description:

Among the coins that circulated in France during the time when Joan of Arc lived was the popular silver obol. Although the term "obol" has been used to describe many coins throughout history, beginning with the ancient Greeks, this coin in its present form had its origins as a silver coin worth 4 denier, first issued in early 13th century France.


This wonderful well preserved example is typical of obol designs issued by feudal lords of the period, featuring a prominent equal-armed cross and inscriptions of the ruler's name, with the family motto and/or monogram written in the crude, medieval script of the period. As a superb presentation, this coin has been released to commemorate the 600th anniversary of the birth of Saint Joan.

Each silver obol is presented within an elegant timber lift-top display case, featuring the coin protectively encapsulated and resting on a plush cushion, accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity
