Saint Pius V, original name Antonio Ghislieri (17 January 1504 – 1 May 1572). His first important appointment was as inquisitor, a high office of the Inquisition, then the Roman Catholic church’s judicial system for discovering, examining, and punishing heretics. Pope Pius V is chiefly notable for his role in the Council of Trent, the Counter-Reformation, and the standardization of the Roman rite within the Latin Church.

Sterling Silver St Pius V Medal
Our Sterling Silver medals are at least 92.5 percent pure silver. Copper is typically combined to improve the metal’s hardness and durability without compromising the quality and look of the silver.
Sterling Silver medals are marked with a quality stamp to ensure the content of the silver. Federal law mandates that the quality stamp must include the maker’s mark. You will find either “Sterling Bliss” or “Sterling BLI” on the back of our medals – both acceptable quality marks.

14kt Gold filled, also known as rolled gold is made up of a solid layer of 14 Karat Gold bonded with a base metal, such as brass, on both the front and back of the medal. Total content of Gold is 1/20 of the weight of the medal.
14 Karat Gold St Pius V Medal
Our 14 Karat Gold is composed of 58.3 percent pure gold and is ideal for fine jewelry. Other alloys, such as copper, are mixed in with the gold to give more of a red warm hue. This also gives the metal strength. Since gold is a natural element, it is very durable. We do recommend removing the jewelry if it may come in contact with chemicals. To clean gold jewelry, use warm water and detergent-free soap and a soft brush.
