Nice Coin

By ACM

from Denver, CO

Pros

  • Attractive Design

Cons

  • Poor Condition

Best Uses

    Comments about France Gold 20 Francs French Rooster AU (Random):

    Don't get me wrong, a very nice coin but I would definitely recommend the Swiss Franc; far and away better condition and luster.

    The rooster I received was in marginal condition, however it is still a must for those interested in the European denominations.

    I would not purchase this coin again but I would not retract the first one I purchased.

    AU...no way...Gem BU

        Comments about France Gold 20 Francs French Rooster AU (Random):

        I received a Gem BU 1910 Rooster. I compared it to the Lucky Angel I ordered earlier, and there was no comparison. Brilliant luster, strong, sharp details. Couldn't ask for a nicer coin. Will be ordering more if the wife okay's it.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Came on time, quick turnaround with credit card...and packaging weighed more than the coin itself. Bear to get in to.

        My Little Red Rooster

            Comments about France Gold 20 Francs French Rooster AU (Random):

            Leave it to the French to appoint a strutting rooster (my first word choice was censored) as that countries national bird … proud, loud and shamelessly promiscuous in a colorful kind of way. The American eagle on the other hand is a warrior … striking like a stealth drone from out of nowhere and whose talons are impossible to escape. The obverse is an allegorical figure known as Marianne, symbolizing the French Republic. She is the equivalent of our Lady Liberty. Both are likely 'descendents' of the Roman Goddess 'Ceres' who symbolized the harvest, the bounty of the soil and the sustaining love a mother bears for her child. She is depicted here in a beautiful art nouveau style. Simply put … this is a beautifully detailed fractional coin. No regrets.

                    Beautiful coins considering they are over 100 years old. Accurately described AU, one coin out of 16 had some smudges. No problem to me as coins are crisp clear sharp details. APMEX has best prices, shop around, compare and one will see. COINS ARE DATED 1906 TO 1913.

                        Coins were listed as AU (Almost Uncirculated)
                        I took one to a dealer and was told they were not AU, but BU (Brilliant Uncirculated) I got more than expected on the quality. Have been dealing with APMEX for 10 years now. no complaints ever...

                                        Of the three: angels, roosters or swissies, I think I like these rooster 20Fr better than the rest. Both sides handsome design. I have one from 1913, year before WWI. makes you wonder what French café was this coin sitting in when the Germans crossed the frontier and the world changed forever.
