Description
The French 20 Franc Rooster gold coin, minted from 1899 to 1914, is an emblem of French national pride and artistic heritage. The obverse of the coin features the Gallic Rooster, an enduring symbol of France, crowing defiantly with the motto "Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité" (Liberty, Equality, Fraternity) inscribed beneath, signifying the revolutionary ideals that underpin the French Republic. The reverse displays the graceful profile of Marianne, the personification of the French Republic, wearing a Phrygian cap, an icon of freedom and a nod to classical Roman motifs, designed by Jules-Clément Chaplain. This coin is composed of 90% gold, indicating a gold purity level of 90%, and contains an actual gold weight of 0.1867 troy ounces (5.805 grams). The Rooster coin is not only a piece of bullion favored by investors but also a collector's item steeped in the national narrative of France, capturing the spirit of the Belle Époque era.
