Throughout the course of history, countless designs have been featured on French francs. They have borne the portraits of early French presidents, emperors, and kings. A "Guardian Angel" design took over in the 19th century, however, as the primary coin design.

Highlights of this coin include the following:
• Originally created/designed by Augustine Dupree in 1792.
• Backed by the government of France, bears a face value of 20 francs.
• Contains .1867 troy ounce of actual gold.
• Struck between 1871 and 1898.

A wreath and legend inscription are featured on the reverse side of this coin. Known as "Genius", the design of the Guardian Angel is on this coin’s obverse side.

A fantastical story is the base for the choice of an angel on this coin. A bolt of lightning saved a man about to face his doom at the guillotine. He later attributed the saving of his life to a coin he carried in his pocket – not surprisingly, it had an angel on it.
