Over 600 years old, the gold French coin set in this elegant necklace dates to 1364-1380 CE and celebrates the figure of King Charles V le Sage. The king is featured prominently on the front of the coin, where he stands frontally beneath a Gothic arch flanked by a field of lis. He holds a sword and scepter crowned by the Hand of Justice. On the reverse of the coin, a cross fleurée is set within a quatrefoil motif and accented by fleur de lis and crowns. The coin is set in an 18K gold bezel with chain.

Charles V, known as le Sage ("the Wise"), ruled France from 1364 until his death in 1380. He led France into a period of recovery and victory after the disastrous outbreak of the Hundred Years' War, recovering much of the land annexed by England. His reign is marked by great strides including the foundation of a new French navy and army, tax reforms and harmonious alliances built with Flanders, Spain and Portugal.
