The 100 Franc Gold Coin was a unique issue in the broader Franc denomination. First conceived in the early 19th century during the reign of Napoleon Bonaparte in France, the Franc Gold Coin started out with denominations of 20 and 40 Francs.
100 Franc denominations were not widely issued until after 1855. During the course of time that 100 Franc Gold Coins were issued, France and Switzerland were two of the largest producers of the coin in continental Europe.
Obverse and reverse designs on the 100 Francs Gold Coins in this listing will vary depending on the date mark and nation of issue. The 100 Franc France Gold Coin, for example, went through at least three iterations in its obverse design. The first was a depiction of Emperor Napoleon III of France issued from 1855 to 1859. A later depiction of Napoleon III issued from 1862 to 1870 captured his effigy at an older age with a laurel wreath crown on his head. The earlier design lacked a crown of any kind. The reverse of the French-issued versions of 100 Francs Gold Coins often features the denomination at the center with a laurel wreath surrounding it in its entirety.
These 100 Francs Gold Coins are available to you for purchase here with protective plastic flips. Each coin comes in Very Good+ condition. The coins will showcase medium to heavy wear in the design field, with some details still easily visible.
