Beauty, luck, and precious gold... possess them all with this lucky 20 Francs Gold Angel! This magnificent 90% pure gold French Angel is prized by collectors everywhere. And it's coveted for the luck it is said to bring its owner. Struck from 1871-1898 (date our choice), it was fashioned after the famed 1791 Guardian Angel design from the French Revolution. Legend has it the coin's designer claimed he escaped the guillotine thanks to the gold Angel coin in his pocket. And Napoleon is said to have carried one of the original coins. However, he lost it just before his defeat in the Battle of Waterloo. More than a century has passed since this French Angel was minted. But you can still enjoy its gifts of timeless art and good luck when you add it to your collection.
