Known as Le Coq Gaulois or the Gallic rooster, it appears on one side of this celebrated coin. Upon the other side is a right-facing profile of Marianne, the personification of France and its classical liberal values including "liberty, equality, fraternity." These 20 Franc Gold coins were minted from 1899 to 1914 and the design was engraved by J.C. Chaplain.

Buy Gold French Roosters for purchasing power that tends to be stable.

Whether investing in Gold French Roosters or other European Gold bullion such as Gold Sovereigns, many investors consider Gold a wise investment because the demand for Gold has been consistent since first being used to trade in ancient times. For centuries, Gold has been used to produce Gold coins and jewelry. The same Gold that is used to produce Gold bullion is also used for modern applications such as corrosion-free electrical connectors, heat shielding and protective coatings on satellites. Though the price of Gold may fluctuate, the purchasing power of Gold tends to remain stable since there is a finite amount of Gold in the world.

Collect iconic Gold French Roosters and satisfy your inner Francophile.

The Gold French Rooster is the quintessential French coin to own because it features the unofficial national symbol of France, the Gallic rooster. The rooster on these Gold coins came to be associated with France back in the Middle Ages due to the Latin word for rooster being gallus, and the Latin word for residents of Gaul (France) being Gallus. Though the rooster did not find its way onto French Gold coins until 1899, it gained popularity as a symbol of France during the French Revolution. Now, like with these Gold bullion coins, you will find roosters featured on French stamps, as the mascots of French national sports teams and even in logos of French businesses.

The French Gold 20 Francs Rooster was produced at the Paris Mint from 1899 to 1914.
