I have always been drawn to large silver coins. I was fortunate to purchase 3 of these. They aren't available all of the time. I have Mexican, Prussian, American, Canadian and now French silver. This coin is beautiful and a must have for any silver lover. I highly recommend this big French coin to everyone. Thanks Apmex

Beautiful French Silver

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I finally got the chance to order 3 of these big beautiful French coins. 2 very nice 1974's that have a bronze toning and 1 1979 that is almost flawless. I am very happy with this purchase. I have been wanting this coin for a while, and as usual, Apmex hits a grand slam(or a 3 run homer anyway). I highly recommend this coin to everyone. Thank you Apmex

Hercules

I have had this coin on my wish list for ever. Right time Right Buy. Same quality as a 1921 BU Morgen, only it carries 12.5% more Silver. This coins comes and goes, but sooner than later it will be harder to come buy. I plan on getting more.

Nice coin but questionable condition

Design of the coin was excellent but my coin came with some sticky marks on the reverse side. For a coin advertised as AU/BU, that shouldn’t be the case.

  • Cons
  • Poor Condition
  • Bottom Line
  • No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I bought one of these in Europe in 1977; since then it has toned wonderfully. A solid peice!

Must-Have!

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

These caught my eye as something a little different for my growing stash of bullion and silver coin. 2 were in nice shape, 2 looked like they'd just come out of the mint. All are heavy, nicely-struck silver coins - in weight, design and minting quality, and variety, very much like the Mexican Cuahtemocs of 30 years earlier. Like the Cuahtemocs, they have a terrific heft in your hand. Get a few when they're in stock next time!

Herculean Value

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

This is a huge, great looking coin. It has the mid 70s zeitgeist of a Dodge Charger or Chevy Malibu. Hefty, powerful, slightly awkward. As an extra treat the coin is edge incused with cool stars and symbols including a rooster. Ah, the French!
