+ IOHANNES BRITONU DUX V : Jean, duc de Bretagne, Origin ref.
+ SIT NOME DNI BENEDICTU : Blessed be the name of the Lord

Jean V :
He became Duke at 10 years old, in 1399, placed under the guardianship of Philippe le Hardi, duke of Bourgogne (Burgundy), crowned in 1402. He managed to safeguard the Duchy's interests by tending towards neutrality, especially during the wars which ravaged France at the time.
Brittany enjoyed a prosperous period during his reign, this currency is strong!  Its worth noting that he reinstroduced gold coins with the "cavalier" and the "florin".

This money was introduced during the time of the 100 years war. It was the only coinage produced at the marked office. It was quite possibly used for settling up with mercenary troops.
