French 20 Franc Gold Rooster

Minted from 1899 to 1914, these traditional French gold coins display the Gallic Rooster, or Coq Gaulois, one of the national symbols of the France since the Middle Ages. The Gallic Rooster played an important role during the French Revolution as an image of revolutionary vigilance, confidence, and pugnacity. In the 1830s the rooster temporarily replaced the fleur-de-lis as the official national emblem until Napoleon III reinstated the fleur-de-lis once again in the mid-1800s.

Appearing today on French stamps and as the insignia for French national sports teams, the French Rooster continues to stand as a proud emblem of the fighting spirit of liberty and independence.

Although French 20 franc “Roosters” are perhaps the most common of the European gold coins, they remain relatively scarce and of historical importance. These lovely coins are an excellent choice for coin collectors and gold bullion investors alike and remain a high value for the price.
