This coin represents the height of the Bourbon monarchy's power in France. King Louis XV's reign saw both the expansion of French influence and the beginning of financial troubles that would later contribute to the French Revolution.

The obverse of the coin features a portrait of King Louis XV facing left. The inscription around the portrait reads "LVD. XV D. G. FR. ET NAV. REX," which translates to "Louis XV, by the Grace of God, King of France and Navarre".

The reverse side of the coin displays the crowned arms of France and Navarre, symbolizing the union of these regions under the French crown. The design includes a shield with three fleur-de-lis, a traditional symbol of French royalty.
