French 20 Franc Gold Coin
French 20 Franc gold coins are one of the most popular gold coins known around the world today. About the size of a penny, each Franc has been struck in just under 1/5th of an ounce (.1867-oz) of 22-kt gold. Three different types of French 20 Francs are available, Napoleons, Angels, and Roosters.
French Francs are a key part of the "Euro-Gold" market sector which are consistently popular with gold bullion buyers and those who want small gold coins without paying a huge premium over gold value.

French 20 Franc
French 20 Francs come in three different designs made in different time periods. The French Napoleon is the oldest and was made from 1852 to 1870. It was replaced by the Angel which was the French Franc from 1871 to 1898 when it was replaced by the French Rooster design that lasted until 1914.
All three Gold French Francs weigh .1867-oz, making them about the size of a modern penny. This small size makes them a top option for those diversifying beyond their 1-oz. gold bullion holdings into fractional sizes smaller than an ounce. Fractional gold offers peace of mind in the off-chance gold and silver are needed as money in a crisis of any duration.
Most importantly, French Francs offer better pricing than modern fractional gold coins like American Eagles. They'll match Eagles in performance as gold rises and offer extra potential thanks to their fixed and limited supply.
