Here is a scheme of the original city of Charleroi ("king Charles"), Belgium on a Brussels jeton of 1667, made a few months after Charleroi was built to defend the Spanish Netherlands against France.
The military plan failed and Charleroi is now one of the major cities of French speaking Belgium

King Charles of Spain on the obverse was only 6 when this jeton was made https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_II_of_Spain

I may have something else from the same period, but from one of the old towns in the United Provinces North of the Spanish Netherlands: a jeton celebrating in 1664 the fact that the people of the old town of Amersfoort were foolish enough to dragged a huge 9 tonne boulder for miles from the moors near Soest, into the town. The "victory" was celebrated with beer of course and made the city famous, giving it the nickname keistad and its inhabitants keitrekkers.

The jeton Dugn.4209 mentions the stone on the obverse 'Palladium Amersfort'


Amersfoort is a fantastic old town for a one day visit, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amersfoort and of course the stone is one of the highlights and can't be missed
