Coins issued from 1878 to 1906 include the phrasing “DIEU PROTÉGÉ LA FRANCE,” while those coins issued from 1907 to 1914 have the motto of the French Revolution: “LIBERTE EGALITE FRATERNITE.”
The obverse side of 100 Francs Gold France Angel Coins features the famed Guardian Angel design from Augustin Dupre. The image features a winged Angel standing at a pedestal as it pens a new French constitution for the republic that would arise following the French Revolution. Dupre thought of his design as the guardian angel because he was spared from the guillotine with one in his pocket. The coin maintained that aura through the 20th century with French pilots in World War I rarely flying without one on missions.
