The gold coins from the French Franc are some of the most popular historic European gold coins among modern collectors and investors. These coins were once circulated in an era before the end of gold standards. One of the smallest denominations in the French Franc was the 10 Francs Gold Coin. Today, you have the opportunity to buy 10 Francs France Gold Coins online from Provident Metals.
The coins of the 10 Franc denomination were issued throughout the 19th century. In 1899, the Paris Mint introduced the final design in this range with the release of the combined Marianne-Rooster design element that would remain in circulation through 1914 as the drums of war started beating in Europe.
On the obverse side of the 10 Francs France Gold Coin is an effigy of Marianne, the female allegory representative of France and the French people. Considered by many to be the inspiration for Americas Statue of Liberty, Marianne is featured here in right-profile relief with a Phrygian cap and laurel wreath. The inscriptions on this side of the coin read REPUBLIQUE FRANCAISE.
The reverse field of 10 Francs Gold Coins comes with a depiction of the Gallic Rooster. This image comes with the popular rooster image that sets the bird in left-profile relief in a commanding stance. The inscriptions on this face of the coin include LIBERTE, EGALITE, FRATERNITE, 10 FCS, and the date mark.
The design of the 10 Francs France Gold Coin was created for the Paris Mint by Jules-Clement Chaplain. Unlike the other Gold Francs, this denomination did not come with edge lettering.
These 10 Francs France Gold Coins are available to you in plastic flips. The coins are in Almost Uncirculated condition with medium or near-full luster. The condition of these coins includes only extremely light or trace flaws or friction on the highest relief points of the coin.
