Lucky French Angels Favorite of all gold Euro coins are the “Lucky” French Angels! Originally minted from 1871 to 1898, these gold coins are genuine Legal Tender French 20 Francs.
The unique “Guardian Angel” design was created in 1793 by Augustine Dupré. In 1871, this historic design was incorporated into a 20 Franc gold coin. Today, French Angels are five to ten times rarer than French Rooster gold coins and even more beloved by coin collectors for the legend behind these gold coins.
A Coin That Saved The Designer - The legend of “Lucky" French Angels began during the Reign of Terror. The coin’s designer, Dupré, was about to be executed on the guillotine. As he knelt beneath the deadly blade, he took his Lucky Gold Angel coin out of his pocket and rubbed it for luck as he said a quick prayer. Instantly, a bolt of lightning struck nearby and panicked the crowd of onlookers. His execution was halted and six months later he was freed. All his life, Dupré claimed his "Lucky" French Angel coin had saved him– and so the legend was born.
An Original, Creative Design - Today, Lucky French Angels make wonderful conversation pieces and unique gifts for all occasions.
