The 20 Francs gold coin was once the most popular denomination across Europe. As a foundation of the Latin Monetary Union, the 20 Francs gold coin provided a common platform for the dimensions and purity of gold coins used across much of southern and Western Europe. One of the most popular designs comes from France in the form of the 20 Francs Gold Roosters. Right now, 20 Francs France Gold Coins in AU+ condition are available to purchase online at Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Ships to you inside of a plastic flip!
  • Issued between 1898 and 1914!
  • Beautiful Gallic Rooster design!
  • Consists of .1867 Troy oz of actual gold content.
  • Bears a face value of 20 Francs backed by the government of France.
  • The obverse features Marianne, the symbol of Liberty and reason in France.
  • On the reverse is the Gallic Rooster, France’s unofficial emblem.

Each of the 20 Francs France Gold Coins in this listing comes with a protective plastic flip to house the coin. Each specimen is available in AU+ condition. Referred to as About Uncirculated or Almost Uncirculated, this term refers to a coin with extremely light to trace wear on the highest points of the design elements only. The coins maintain medium to full luster. The inclusion of “plus” with the AU rating indicates the coins are among the better quality AU coins.

The 20 Francs Gold Rooster was issued by France during the era of the Third Republic, which covered a period of time from the 1870 fall of Emperor Napoleon III to the Nazi Invasion of France during World War II. The 20 Francs Gold Rooster design was specifically issued between 1898 and 1914.

The obverse side of 20 Francs France Gold Coins in this listing comes with the female personification of France, Marianne. Her figure has long been used on French coins and in French art as a symbol of Liberty and reason. Shown in right-profile relief, she wears a cap on her head with a wreath crown. Inscriptions include “Republique Francaise.”

On the reverse face of 20 Francs France Gold Coins is the famed Gallic Rooster, the image that gives this particular design series from the mint its name as 20 Francs Gold Rooster Coins. The Gallic Rooster has long been an unofficial emblem of the nation and remains in popular use as the symbol of the French national soccer team.

Each one of these coins comes with 90% gold content. These were last issued by the Paris Mint in 1914 on the eve of World War I and the design was not revived in the aftermath of the war. Founded in 846, the Paris Mint is the sovereign mint of France and represents the oldest institution in the country.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
