Buy France 10 Franc Gold Napoleon III - Random Date

Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte, the nephew of the famed general and French Emperor, was the first French president elected by a direct vote in 1848. When blocked from running for a second term by limitations within the Constitution of the Second French Republic, he led a coup d'etat, establishing himself as Emperor Napoleon III, thus ending the republic.

The obverse of this 10 Franc French Napoleon carries the image of Emperor Napoleon III, his name, and title on the obverse. The bearded emperor is shown facing right with some later mint dates including a wreath of laurels upon his head. The classical civilizations of Greece and Rome used the laurel crown to indicate victory in athletic competition and war, respectively. The French Empire's identification with the martial glory of the Roman Empire hints that Napoleon III was intending himself to be portrayed here as a military leader in the Roman style. The reverse contains the coin's denomination (10 Francs) and its mint year, which are surrounded by a laurel wreath. Along the edge of the coin above the laurels are inscribed the words "Empire Francais," The French Empire.

During Napoleon III's reign and that of his famed uncle and namesake, French Gold coins were minted at varying denominations. The low weight (AGW 0.0933 oz) of these 10 Franc coins makes them relatively accessible and therefore especially attractive for those seeking to enter into buying gold. The history of these coins and the man they depict make Gold Napoleons an excellent choice for collectors as well.

Gainesville Coins is pleased to offer French 10 Franc Napoleons in random mint dates. Each order will contain one Gold Napoleon randomly selected based on our inventory.
