On the obverse side of the 20 Francs France Rooster Gold Coin, you will find the female personification of France and Liberty in right-profile relief. Marianne wears a Phrygian cap with a modest wreath crown on her head and inscriptions that identify the nation of issue. Inscribed in French, the text on this side of the coin reads Francaise Republique, which translates into English as French Republic.


The reverse face of the 20 Francs France Rooster Gold Coin features the unofficial national emblem of France.

The 20 Francs gold coin was issued by France for the longest period of time, originating during the reign of Napoleon as the emperor of the First French Empire. The 20 Francs gold coin continued to feature during the eras of the First French Republic, Second French Empire, and the modern French Republic. The rooster design featured in these coins was issued only from 1892 to 1914. 20 Francs Gold Coins were the foundation of the Latin Monetary Union. This denomination of currency is considered by many to be a predecessor to the modern Euro currency that has become the common currency of the European Union.
