French Gold 20 Franc Coins

Brief French History

We give a brief history of France, and of French gold coins on our French Gold Coins page.

Gold Roosters

France issued gold "roosters", with a cockerel on the reverse, and the head of Ceres on the obverse, from 1899 to 1914.
We can supply these as bullion coins, and can often supply individual dates in Uncirculated grade.
