Monaco Gold Coins

Brief Monaco History
Monaco is named after Monoikos, the Greek for Hercules, who is reputed to have formed the Monaco headland during one of his twelve labours. It has been ruled by the Rainier family since 1297, except for a brief period during the French Revolution, but enjoys a customs union with France. It is a Principality, and is the world's second smallest sovereign state, after the Vatican. Monaco consists of Monacoville, its capital, Monte Carlo, and a small industrial area.

Monaco Gold Coins
Monaco's coin denominations, their weights and sizes, have closely followed those of France, except that they naturally feature the ruling family of Monaco. Monagesque gold coins are much scarcer than their French counterparts.
