The obverse of the 20 Francs Marianne Rooster gold coin features the portrait of Marianne, a representation of liberty and reason. This laureat portrait is surrounded by the inscription “Republique Franaise”. The reverse of the 20 Francs Rooster gold coin is the Gallic Rooster, a national symbol of France. The inscriptions on the reverse are “LIBERTE EGALITE FRATERNITE”, a French slogan meaning Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity. Also inscribed at the bottom of the Gold Rooster coin is the denomination of “20 FCS” and the year of minting. This gorgeous and historically rich gold coin also has a feature that makes it stand out: edge lettering. There are 2 variations of the edge lettering on the French Gold Rooster Coin: “DIEU PROTEGE LA FRANCE” which can be found on coins bearing dates of 1899-1904 and “LIBERTE EGALITE FRATERNITE” on coins dated 1905-1914. The 20 Francs Gold Rooster became such a popular coin that the Monnaie de Paris issued re-strikes of dates 1907 to 1914 in 1921 and again from 1951 to 1960.
