It's stunningly beautiful and .900 Pure Gold. Yet what makes this 100-year-old French Gold Angel one of the world's most sought-after coins is its reputation for bringing luck to its owner. It started during the French Revolution, when Augustine Dupre, the coin's designer, credited his escape from the guillotine to the 20-Franc Gold Angel in his pocket. Napoleon Bonaparte is said to have carried the lucky coin—until he lost it the day before his defeat at Waterloo! In fact, it's amazing good fortune that you can own this Gold Angel, which was minted from 1871-1898. Most classic European Gold coins were melted during the world wars and again when gold prices skyrocketed in the 1980's. A hoard of Gold Angels has been discovered in Europe - perhaps your last chance to acquire this "lucky" 90% Pure Gold coin in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
