The French golden Angel is one of the most famous coins in the world. Her story is rooted in the 18th century. In 1791, the minting of new Luidors began. The appearance of monetary units is associated with the Great French Revolution of 1789-1799, as a result of which the Constitution was adopted. The design was developed by the famous French engraver Augustin Dupre.
It is believed that Dupre did not portray an angel at all, but a winged genius - a guardian spirit inspired by ancient Roman mythology. In the hands of the genius is a scribble on which he writes the word "Constitution." However, external similarities with the more familiar image of a winged man - a biblical angel - led to the fact that such a name was assigned to the coin.
Over the years, the design of the coin has changed. But if the obverse affected only minor changes: a new pose that disappeared from the scrub inscription, then the reverse underwent significant changes after the execution of Louis XVI. Initially, his portrait was depicted on the reverse. After 1793, the face value, a year, began to be minted there, and later the inscription was added: "LIBERTÉ ÉGALITÉ FRATERNITÉ," which means "Freedom, Equality and Brotherhood."
Today, the Angel of France is very popular as a collection copy and investment asset. The coin presented on our website is made of gold 0.900 samples. The total weight of the monetary unit is 1 troy ounce (31.1 g). The weight of pure precious metal in the specimen is 29.3 g.
