Product Description

 

French 20 Franc Gold Coin

The French 20 Franc Rooster was produced from 1898-1915 with a total mintage of 117,448,888. The total weight of the Rooster is 0.2074 of a troy ounce and it is a 0.900 fine coin meaning it is alloyed with a small amount of copper which adds to its durability.

The actual gold content of the French 20 Franc Rooster is 0.1867 troy ounce. The obverse of the coin has a profile of Cérès, the Roman goddess of agriculture, grain crops, fertility and motherly relationships. She is a symbol of the 3rd French Republic and represents the copiousness of the nation and written around her are the words “République Française” or “French Republic”. The reverse pictures a Le Coq Gaulois or Gallic Rooster with the words “Liberté Egalité Fraternitén” or “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity (brotherhood).”

The Gallic Rooster is an unofficial national symbol of France as a Republic. The French people also see the Rooster as a strong Christian symbol dating back to when France was known as Gaul. The reverse also denotes the 20 franc denomination and year of mintage.

Because these earlier gold coins were minted in large quantities they trade on the world gold market for low premiums and so are attractive to bullion investors.

If you are looking for fractional gold coins but are put off by the higher premiums that you have to pay for all 1/2, 1/4, and 1/10th in relationship to their one ounce parents, consider the gold Swiss or Gold Franc. The premiums are closer to what you would pay for 1 ounce gold bars.
