The Gold 40 Francs Swiss Coin is among the rarest of these 19th-century gold coins. When Napoleon reintroduced Gold Francs in 1803, several denominations were available. The 10, 20, and 100 Francs options became the most popular among users in the French Republic and greater Europe, resulting in fewer 40 Francs Gold Coins floating around today for investors and collectors to purchase.

On the obverse of Gold 40 Francs Coins, you’ll likely find the bust of a ruling king or emperor from France. The coins in the 40 Francs denomination were struck throughout France’s holdings in the early 19th century, and this included mints in Geneva, Switzerland. France invaded the famously neutral nation during the latter stages of its Revolutionary War and maintained control over Geneva until 1814.

The Gold 40 Francs Coins available at random through this listing could feature the bust of King Charles X. Reigning as King of France from 1824 to 1830, Charles was the younger brother of King Louis XVI and Louis XVIII.

Gold 40 Francs Coins have the crowned arms of France on the reverse. The image includes a shield with horizontal lines in the background and the image of three fleur-de-lis symbols upon this field. The face value of the coins is split on either side of the shield, which has a crown atop it.
