It's fortunate day for anyone who purchases this beautiful "Lucky" French Angel Gold Coin. With an exquisite design and rich history, it's a rare opportunity to own one of Europe's favorite coins of the past.

"Lucky" French Gold Angel Coin Features:

  • Beautiful design - the design features a winged Guardian Angel protecting the French Constitution. This is an image that represents the French spirit of liberty and freedom. There is a small Gallic rooster in the background and the reverse shows the denomination (20 Francs) surrounded by the French motto of independence, "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity," that was inspired by the American Revolution.
  • "Lucky" coin - the first Angel gold coin was minted in France in 1792 and was designed by Augustin Dupre. When Dupre was scheduled for execution, a turn of good fortune allowed him to be released from prison. He attributed his good luck to the "lucky" Angel coin he carried in his pocket and soon the Angel coin became a symbol of good luck across France and throughout Europe.
  • Revived in 1871 -  in 1871, the design was revived on a French 20 Francs gold coin and was made until 1898
  • Brilliant Uncirculated - just as fresh and beautiful as the day it was minted over 100 years ago
  • Random date between 1871-1898 
  • Struck in .900 pure gold
  • Display wallet
