The 20 Franc Angel’s obverse is packed with symbolism. At the center, a winged angel is shown writing on a tablet. Art historians and numismatists speculate this tablet is actually the French Republic’s constitution and the angel represents divine approval of democracy. On the left side, a bundle of rods is shown as a symbol of military strength. The gallic rooster, an ancient icon of France, appears at the lower right.


The reverse displays the coin’s denomination of 20 Francs surrounded by a wreath and the motto “LIBERTE, EGALITE, FRATERNITE.” Each coin displays the “A” mintmark, indicating that the coin was struck at the Paris Mint (aka Monnaie de Paris).

About the 1898-1914 France 20 Francs Angel NGC AU

The 20 Franc gold coin was a mainstay of European commerce in the 19th and early 20th centuries. These conveniently-sized gold pieces were used heavily by traders, merchants, banks, governments, and individuals throughout the region. While they vanished from circulation long ago, 20 Franc gold coins have become popular collectibles. Numismatists are attracted to the coins for their fascinating historical significance, beautiful designs, and intriguing heritage.

The 20 Franc Angel is a favorite for its graceful and highly symbolic motif. While this coin enjoys tremendous demand in all grades, these high-quality NGC-graded specimens are particularly desirable. Each piece is graded AU50 or better, which means only the slightest evidence of wear is visible. These coins were likely plucked out of circulation and stashed away untouched for years.
