This medal is very similar to the 1654 Coronation medal by Erich Parise, a medalist in Sweden from about 1630-1655. It is probable that they worked together during this time. Charles Xs reign was relatively short and coins with his portrait are only infrequently encountered and not usually really nice. Medals with his portrait are also not common. (William J. Goetz, Numismatist).
