The Franc Gold Coin introduced by France in the early 19th century during the reign of Napoleon Bonaparte was one of the most important coins of the era. The size and standard purity of these coins would go on to form the foundation of the Latin Monetary Union, a common currency that helped unify the currencies of several nations. Provident Metals currently has 40 Francs France Gold Coins from the reign of King Charles X of France available to you for purchase online.
When you purchase one of the 40 Francs France Gold Coins in this Provident Metals listing, you will receive a coin that once circulated throughout France and Europe in the 19th century. These coins come with an individual plastic flip and will showcase common signs of handling from circulation use. It is impossible to know how that handling will be reflected in each coin, but generally speaking, circulated coins have wear and tear present on the design relief with possible contact marks, scuffs, or other flaws.
Provident Metals cannot guarantee the exact date mark you will receive. All coins in this listing have a possible date mark of 1824 to 1830. We will pick coins to fulfill your order only after your payment clears. Whatever is in stock at this time will determine the exact dates you receive. If you buy several, please keep in mind you could get coins with matching dates.
