Description
The French 20 Francs gold coin from the reign of Charles X, minted from 1825 to 1830, is a numismatic representation of the later Bourbon Restoration period. The obverse of the coin features a portrait of King Charles X, the last Bourbon king of France, often shown with a laurel crown, symbolizing peace and triumph, and embodying the traditionalist policies he pursued. This period’s coins are distinguished by the inclusion of the king’s title "Charles X Roi de France," which underscores the monarch’s divine right to rule. Made with a gold purity of 90% (21.6 karats), the coin contains 0.1867 troy ounces (5.805 grams) of gold. The reverse design is typically adorned with the royal coat of arms, the crown, and the mantle, alluding to the opulence and authority of the monarchy. The Charles X gold coins are prized for their historical significance, as they were among the last to bear the effigy of a Bourbon king before the July Revolution of 1830, which led to a more constitutional and less absolute monarchy in France.
