About the France Gold 20 Franc Rooster (Random Year)

The 20 Francs Rooster was struck in the heart of France by the French Mint. The first coins were struck in 1899, and quickly gained popularity despite not remaining in circulation very long. Today, these coins have appeal for their iconic Marianne Rooster design, making them a great piece to buy.

Highlights of this Coin:

  • Contains .1867 oz of actual gold content
  • Minted from 1899-1914
  • Face value of 20 Francs
  • Individual coins ship in protective flips, orders of 40+ ship in tubes
  • Obverse: A bust of Marianne, as well as the words "Republique Francaise"
  • Reverse: a Gallic Rooster, as well as the date, value, and "Liberte - Egalite - Fraternite", French for Liberty, Equality, Fraternity

About the 20 Francs:

To make international transactions easier, many European nations cooperated on creating a standard issue of purity and gold content on the 20 Franc coin, a purity of .900 fine gold and a pure gold weight of .1867 troy ounces. This standardization paved the way to many different versions of the 20 Franc, many of which Monument Metals carries on a regular basis. We offer the French 20 Franc Napoleon III, Swiss 20 Franc Helvetia, French 20 Franc Angel, French 20 Franc Rooster, and Italian 20 Lire, among others. 

One of the more popular of these coins was the 20 Francs Rooster. With only a 15 year mintage from 1899-1914, these coins had a large appeal with the French population leading to higher mintages. The 20 Francs Rooster soon became the unofficial symbol of France, with both the iconic Gallic Rooster design and its bust of Marianne. Today, the Marianne symbol has become a symbol of Liberty, and the Gallic Rooster represents the country's rich culture and history.

All orders from Monument Metals are guaranteed as described, shipped discretely, and fully insured.
