100 Francs France Gold Genie Coin “Lucky Angel” – Varied Year (XF-AU)

100 Francs France Gold Genie Coin “Lucky Angel” – Varied Year (XF-AU)

$2,412.26

One of the most popular and rarest Gold Coins of the late 19th century and early 20th century was the 100 French Francs. Offered by the French Empire and the French Republic throughout the 19th century, the Franc was available in denominations of 5, 10, 20, 40, 50 and 100. The 100 Francs French Gold Coin is roughly the size of the $20 Gold Double Eagle from the United States, weighing at 32.3 grams (1.139 oz), making this a spectacular coin.  The design is renowned for it’s depiction of an “Angel” of “Winged Genius” (Genie in Europe).  The design is often referred to as a French “Angel,” “Lucky Angel,” or “Wise Angel,” in the United States.  Due to the scarcity of the coins they are prized by collectors and extremely difficult to acquire.

Description

The magnificent design found on the 100 Francs France Gold Coin is known as the Guardian Angel or Lucky Angel. The design was created by Augustin Dupre during the era of the French Revolution and was widely circulated throughout continental Europe in the 19th century. The image on the coin became known as a Lucky Angel when Dupre reportedly escaped the guillotine with one of the coins in his pocket.

On the reverse side of all 100 Francs Gold Coins is the denomination of the coins in Francs encircled by a wreath. The coins issued between 1878 and 1906 feature an engraving around this design of DIEU PROTG LA FRANCE. Those struck between 1907 and 1914 feature the slogan of the French Revolution, LIBERTE EGALITE FRATERNITE.

The obverse face of 100 Francs France Gold Coins includes Dupres depiction of an Angel. This Guardian Angel puts pen to paper at a pedestal as a new French constitution is written. There is the design of a fasces to the left and the French rooster to the right. Engravings on this side include Republique Francaise as French had returned to a republic following decades as the French Empire during the mid-19th century.
