Each of these French 20 Franc gold coins contains 90% fine gold and has an actual gold weight of .1867 troy ounces!

Indulge your sense of history as well as your sound investment strategy with some Pre-1870 20 Franc gold coins.

These coins, dated 1852 to 1870, feature slightly different designs, depending on the year of minting, but include portraits of Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte, also known as Napoleon III, the president of the French Republic and nephew of the great leader Napoleon Bonaparte. The portraits metamorphose as the young president aged, from a soft-featured youth to a dignified man with illustrious goatee and mustache.

The reverse features a triumphal wreath and the words “20 FRANCS.”

Now considered the “Euro before the Euro,” the 20 Franc gold coin was desirable in its day (and continues to be sought by investors), regardless of the European country.

Napoleon III was the first president of the young republic, and is now remembered for his focus on foreign policy, moving to reinstate French influence in Europe. He helped design the renovation of Paris to create the city we know today.

In addition to the historical interest, each 20 Franc coin contains 90% fine gold, with an actual gold weight of .1867 troy ounces.

Order your 20 Franc coins from Provident Metals today and enjoy some liberté, égalité, fraternité of your own!
