France Gold Coins

French Gold Francs

France was a founding member of the Latin Currency Union which turned into a gold standard in 1873 which only ended on the onset of the first world war. The Gold French Franc is a popular coin with international Gold collectors and ranges from low-premium bullion to a moderate premium numismatic piece depending on the type of Gold Franc

France is not the only nation with a Gold franc as Switzerland and Belgium also have their own versions of the Gold franc but none offer the same range as the French version. Gold French francs were minted throughout the 18th century and offer a range of French monarch portraits which are typically offered at affordable premiums
