The history of French Lucky Angel Gold coins

The French Lucky Angel Gold coin is an example of the quality Gold bullion produced by the Paris Mint, or Monnaie de Paris, officially founded in 864 under the rule of Charles II. The obverse of the French coin is a replication of Augustin Dupre’s “winged genius” design originally used on the French 24 livre Gold coin in 1793. Created during the French Revolution, these Angel coins also feature the iconic French rooster to symbolize French patriotism, and a bundle of rods, known as fasces, to symbolize authority. The world coins were minted from 1871 until 1898 and these Gold bullion coins are popular among both investors and collectors.

Why invest in the French Lucky Angel Gold coins?

Gold coins have long been considered valuable and these French Lucky Angel Gold coins are no exception. Many buy these French coins as safe-haven investments, as Gold prices typically remain stable or even increase when other investments falter. Angel coins also have added numismatic or collector value, which contributes to their Gold coin price. As vintage sovereign world coins, these Gold coins have far greater value than the basic Gold bar. Other popular sovereign Gold coins that many add to their investment portfolio include American Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagles and Austrian Gold Philharmonics.

Collect French Lucky Angel Gold coins and learn about the legend surrounding them.

The legend surrounding these Gold coins began when their designer, Augustin Dupre, was to be executed on the guillotine after losing favor with King Louis XVI. There are several stories about what happened next, however they all boil down to Dupre somehow using the Lucky Angel coin he had with him to escape. Some say he used the world coin to bribe the guard to let him escape, while others say he quickly prayed while rubbing the Gold coin and lightning struck close by, causing enough chaos to halt his execution that day. Either way, these Gold coins earned a reputation as being lucky and became known as Lucky Angels.

Buy French Lucky Angel Gold coin featuring the art of Augustin Dupre.

Prior to designing these Angel coins and various medals for King Louis XVI, Napoleon Bonaparte, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin, Augustin Dupre was employed as an engraver at the royal factory of weapons in 1768. While working at the armory, he gained the patronage of the Spanish ambassador and began studying sculpture, which led to him becoming a leading French medalist, producing medals such as the General Daniel Morgan medal and the Libertas Americana medal. In 1791, a contest to design Gold coins was introduced to reinvent French currency under the rule of King Louis XVI and Dupre was the winner. His designs graced French coins until the introduction of the euro in 2000.
