French Saint Joan of Arc Medal

US$325.00
This very rare vintage French Saint Joan of Arc medallion is a true treasure. The medallion depicts St Joan at the stake with her Sacred Sword by her side. Next to her is a a lion symbolic of courage, strength and valour. "Saint Martin" is artfully engraved along the border and is a reference to the "Chapelle de St. Martin de Seyssuel". It is said that St. Joan visited and prayed at the chapel on March 9, 1429 after meeting King Charles VII of France. Legend relates that St. Joan prayed to a statue of the Virgin Mary while standing on a flat stone which is now behind the altar. Afterwards, she knelt down and kissed the stone, and ever since, the temperature of the stone has been colder than those that surround it.
