The front of this medal features a strong image of St Joan of Arc in profile with a fleur-de-lys which is the symbol of the kings of France. The reverse shows Joan’s coat of arms surrounded by “Jeanne d’Arc Nee A Domremy – 1414” (Joan of Arc Born in Domremey – 1414).
As a teenager Joan heard the heavenly voices of several saints instructing her to go help the king reclaim France from the English. At age 17 she was given a small army and captured the city of Orleans. She went on to have several amazing military victories. She was burned at the stake by the English in 1431 at age 19.
The medal was cast in sterling silver from an antique medal in the Rosa Mystica Collection so it shows all the beauty and history of the original piece. It comes with a matching holy card in an organza gift bag, ready for gift-giving, and was made in the USA.
