Buy French Gold 20 Franc Coins from Money Metals Exchange

French gold coins bearing the image of  Napoleon Bonaparte were first issued during his reign in the early 1800s. These gold "Napoleons" became ubiquitous throughout Europe. Later the design of the 20-franc gold coins would change. Busts of King Charles X and Louis-Phiippe followed Napoleon's portrait.

Beginning in 1849 the 20-franc coins carried the image of Ceres, the Roman goddess of agriculture. 'Le coq gaulois," the Gallic Rooster, was added to the coin's reverse in 1899. These coins are referred to as "roosters" (Franc Rooster coin), and remain popular among gold bullion coin investors today.

French 20-francs are a great way to buy a "fractional" sized gold coin. For people who want to hold some smaller coins in their portfolio, these are a very low-cost option. The low premiums coupled with trust and recognizability, make them a terrific choice for investors who think smaller more affordable bullion coins will outperform or seek something that will be useful in barter.

French 20 Francs Offer:

  • Very low premiums
  • .1867 oz actual Gold content at 90% purity
  • A variety of interesting designs, with the two most common being "Napoleons" and 'Roosters"

Dates and designs shipped will be random, based on what we have available in inventory.

    nicer than expected
    I purchased a rooster from another dealer some time ago and paid a premium for AU condition. The 2 coins that I received from MMX were nicer than the coin that I had paid a premium for, and there was no extra premium. Way to go MMX.

    French Roosters
    I ordered a few of these for my collection. Everything went smooth, fast shipping after I paid by ACH. Coins very well packed which is the way it usually is from MMX. Coins in very good condition, and as I said well packaged. You actually pay for what you get. Some dealers may give you a deal a few bucks cheaper, but the customer service is bad and the coins arrive beat up or in low quality boxes. Everything with MMX is top quality. I will order again.
