Created during the rule of the Third French Republic, the Gold Marianne-Rooster Coin from the French Mint was produced as one of the last circulation gold coins prior to World War I. While these designs have lived on in other denominations issued in the interwar period and after World War II, gold coins such as these were not issued.

The obverse of the 10 Francs Gold France Coins features one of the most iconic Gold Franc designs in French history. Here, you will find a right-profile relief of Marianne, the female personification of France that arose during the French Revolution and has been popularly used in the various French Republics formed since that time. She is shown in right-profile relief with a Phrygian cap on her head and a laurel wreath around her head. The nation of issue and initials of the designer feature on this side.
On the reverse field of 10 Francs Gold France Coins is an even older symbol from France. The Gallic Rooster dates to the Middle Ages and has long been a national symbol used in France. To this day, the image of the Gallic Rooster remains prominent and is used by such organizations as the French national football team. The designs on this side and the obverse of the coin come from Jules-Clement Chaplain.
10 Francs Gold France Coins from the Marianne-Rooster release were struck in relatively high volumes, with the 1906, 1907, and 1914 issues surpassing 3 million coins for each date mark, while the 1901 and 1910 coins both surpassed 2 million coins. However, these coins are somewhat rare in the 21st century.
