It has become an annual tradition here at USAGOLD to offer a truly unique holiday gift option -- a lovely French Angel coin pendant, complete with 14k gold bezel and 14k gold 18-inch rope chain.

The scarcity of the French Angel 20 Franc coin has always limited the number of pendants we are able to offer, and this year is no different. We are working yet again from an extremely limited inventory and recommend your quick action if you don't want to miss out.
Owning the famous French Angel gold coin has always been considered
good luck. Legend has it that an earlier version accompanied
Napoleon in his quest to conquer Europe. He carried it in the
long march to Russia and back until he finally misplaced it --
the day before the Battle of Waterloo. The coin's designer, Augustine
Dupré, held a gold angel as he prayed for his life, catching
the eye of his guard, allowing him to negotiate his escape from
"There are literally thousands
of stories about the powers of the 'French Angel.' There
are stories of people who claim their lives were saved during
some tragic event to those who extol its healing powers from
terminal cancer and other diseases. I have even found websites
where many have told their stories. Never have I seen so much
mysticism surrounding a numismatic coin. This is a coin that
any collector can enjoy for its beauty, but the stories behind
this coin really make it a collectors' must have piece."

The French Angel characterizes
the ideals of the French Revolution, which toppled the Monarchy
and introduced the Republic after a brutal revolution.. Symbolically,
the Angel represents the Spirit of France and he is shown on
the coin writing the French Constitution. A rooster symbolizing
Vigilance appears next to the Angel. Behind the Angel stands
the fasces or bundle of rods -- a symbol of power previously
carried by Roman magistrates. On the top of the fasces is the
Cap of Liberty, which also appears on U.S. coinage with the same
meaning. The slogan "Liberte Egalite Fraternite" appears
on the reverse along with the date.
