1817-A Gold France 20 Franc Louis XVIII Coin NGC AU 55


Minted between 1816 and 1824 by the French government, this 20 Francs Louis XVIII gold coin can be referred to as a coin with a short span of life which makes it very desirable for collectors.

This particular French gold coin with a denomination of 20 Francs has the desirable qualities searched for by numismatists: it was minted in a scarce mintage during a short period of time and it is old with an age of almost 200 years.

On the obverse of the 20 Francs Louis XVIII gold coin is depicted the bear headed portrait which is facing right of King Louis XVIII who ruled France. The inscription present on the obverse of this gold coin is LOUIS XVIII ROI DE FRANCE. Under the portrait of the French king, which occupies almost entirely the obverse, is depicted a small horse head.

On the reverse of the 20 Francs Louis XVIII gold coin is depicted a laureate French crowned shield. The year of minting (1817) is inscribed under the shield togther with the mint makr A, and the denomination 20 F.

King Louis XVIII was a king with a troubled reign - He was vanquished by Napoleon Bonaparte after escaping from his island-prison on Elba. Fortunately for him, Napoleon had a short and not so glorious comeback, so in 1815 King Ludwig XVIII returned to the throne of France and a year after his return, in 1816, began minting the 20 Francs Louis XVIII gold coin.

He is as famous as the gold coin on which his portrait appears for wanting to royalty and the public closer together. He is also the last French monarch to reign until his death.

This French gold bullion coin is a perfect and beautiful gold asset for everyone. Like all of our other gold coins, this one is guaranteed to be 100% authentic. Item will be wrapped and packaged safe for delivery.
