French 20 Franc

The French 20 Franc gold coin is one of the most popular gold coins known around the world today. About the size of a penny, each coin has been struck in just under 1/5th of an ounce (.1867 ounces) of 22k gold. French 20 Francs come in three different obverse designs and are perfect for someone looking for a smaller-sized gold coin without paying a huge premium over gold value.

  • French 20 Franc Rooster 1901-1914

    If you're looking for a great deal in fractional gold bullion, then you must consider the classic French 20 Franc "Rooster" gold coins. Premiums over their gold melt value are at historic lows and even though these are over 100 years old, you can acquire them today for less per ounce than what you'd pay for modern, 1/4 ounce Gold American Eagles. Each coin contains just under 1/5th of an ounce (.1867 troy ounces of pure gold) and you can buy them individually or in tubes of forty coins each. They're comprised of 22 karat gold, just like American Eagles, and they are roughly the size of a penny. You can order a few online or call us for the lowest quantity discounts when you pay by check or bank wire. Learn More
  • French 20 Franc Angels 1871-1898

    Our favorite of all classic European Gold coins are the “Lucky” French Angels! Originally minted from 1871 to 1898, these gold coins are genuine legal tender French 20 Francs. Each one contains .1867 troy ounces of pure Gold. The unique “Guardian Angel” design was created in 1793 by Augustine Dupré. In 1871, this historic design was incorporated into a 20 Franc gold coin. Today, French Angels are five to ten times rarer than French Rooster gold coins and even more beloved by coin collectors for the legend behind these gold coins. Due to their age, French Angels are delivered in lightly circulated condition. Learn More
  • Napoleon III French 20 Francs 1852-1870

    These classic Napoleon III French 20 Francs dated from 1852-1870 each contain just under 1/5 of an ounce or .1867 of pure Gold. Each coin is in About Uncirculated condition and rarely do we encounter this design type of the French 20 Franc series in this high state of preservation. We think they offer incredible value due to the fact that when compared to a modern ¼ ounce Gold Eagle these classic European coins can actually be acquired for less per ounce.
