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.

The "lucky angel" design visible on the Gold 20 Francs was first designed by Augustine Dupré in 1792.

Lucky Gold Angel!

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

The religious in me likes angels, and I like coins from the 1800s too so this was perfect for me. I received an 1895 that I'd say is in better than avg circulation condition. I'm new so I wouldn't be able to accurately grade it but I would definitely recommend to a friend. A+ for APMEX!


  • Pros
  • Attractive Design
  • Recognized Brand

Very pleased with both coin and service

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

Once again an Apmex going coin listed as "avg circ" comes in looking more like AU (almost uncirculated). I got an 1877 coin, which together with the "lucky angel" is extra cool. Amazing that Apmex sells a coin that is beautiful and 140+ years old so close to spot. I put it on my digital scale and it came in at exactly 6.45g as it is supposed to. Not even 1/100 of one gram in wear!


  • Pros
  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Attractive Design

OK coin with low premium

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

Avg Circ means just that, the coin I received looks like it was pulled out of a vending machine receptacle. Low premiums are reflected in coin quality.

Great buy if youre wanting it for strictly bullion purposes. If your wanting "collector" grade, buy the uncirculated one instead.
