XF/AU Condition

France Gold 20 Francs - Lucky Angel
were produced from 1871 - 1898 and contain 0.1867 oz. of gold. The legend of ?Lucky" French Angels began during the Reign of Terror. The coin's designer, Dupr?, was about to be executed on the guillotine. As he knelt beneath the deadly blade, he took his Lucky Gold Angel coin out of his pocket and rubbed it for luck as he said a quick prayer. Instantly, a bolt of lightning struck nearby and panicked the crowd of onlookers. His execution was halted and six months later he was freed. All his life, Dupr? claimed his "Lucky" French Angel coin had saved him -- and so the legend was born. France Gold 20 Francs are a popular choice for investor's because of the low premium over the spot price of gold.

Coin Design
Obverse: Angel drafting the Constitution.
Reverse: Denomination within wreath with inscriptions LIBERTE, EGALITE and FRATERNITE.
