Beauty, luck, and gold... possess them all with this lucky 20 Francs Gold Angel!

  • 90% pure gold

Coveted for the luck it's said to bring its owner, France's magnificent Gold Angel was fashioned after the 1791 Guardian Angel of the French Revolution. Legend holds its designer escaped the guillotine thanks to the gold Angel coin in his pocket. And Napoleon reputedly carried one of the originals... but lost it just before his defeat at 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!
