This French gold coin was minted at the turn of the 20th century, beginning in 1901 until France found herself embroiled in the First World War in 1914.

French gold coins are known for their beauty and attractive displays of classic design and structure. While considered rare, the French Rooster gold coin is considered to be quite affordable, and is therefore the most popular of many gold coins produced in Europe.

Containing nearly a fifth of an ounce of pure gold, the facing front of this French gold coin displays the head of the third Republic lady surrounded by the words "Republique Franaise," the motto of the French Revolution.

The reverse side of the coin shows an exquisitely designed and presented fully plumed rooster with the words "Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite" etched in capital letters around the edges.

The phrase on the reverse side of the coin was created during the French Revolution against Louis XVI, and the front face of the coin, showing Lady Liberty, was established and created in the Franco-Prussian war of 1870 upon the defeat of Napoleon III.

Measuring 21.0 mm in diameter, the French Rooster gold coins contain 0.900 fineness. Coins predating 1901 are extremely rare, and are highly coveted by those with an appreciation for French gold coins displaying a sense of history and unique design.
