Of all the classic European gold coins, the French Angel, minted from 1871 to 1898, is the most sought after.

  • The legend of the "Lucky Angel" began in the mid-1790's during the French Revolution
  • Augustus Dupré, the coin's designer, claimed to have been saved from the guillotine by the Lucky Angel coin in his pocket
  • In 1871, the design was resurrected for the gold French 20-franc
  • Very Fine to Extremely Fine Condition
