Gold Rooster Issues Loud Wake-Up Call!

Whether you’re a seasoned gold buyer or new to the precious metal, this French Gold Rooster is a great way to get your share. Struck between 1899 and 1914, it’s one of the most beautiful gold coins ever minted. The Gold Rooster shows France’s version of Miss Liberty on one side wearing a crown of oak leaves and the famous French crowing rooster on the other topped by the French motto: Liberty, Equality, Fraternity. Each is struck in 6.45 grams of 90% gold. The minting of the gold Rooster ceased abruptly with the start of World War I in 1914. The melting of millions of these legal-tender 20 Franc French Gold Roosters during the last century has caused the availability of this desirable classic European gold coin to diminish with each passing year. It’s amazing that any have survived, let alone in Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition like those offered here. Each is struck in 90% gold and contains .1867 ounces of pure gold. Answer the call to gold with this classic French Gold Rooster and stock up on French gold! Dates vary.
