10 French francs

The gold 10 French francs, like the 20 FF, exists in different variants: Napoleon, Ceres & Rooster // Marianne, and was minted from 1850 to 1914. The 10 FF, along with the 20 BEF, 20 CHF & 20 ITL, make up the proverbial 'euro-before-the-euro-club'.

Purity & weight

The gold 10 French francs has a purity of 900/1.000 (21,6 carats) and a net gold weight of 2,90 grams. The remaining 0,32 grams consist of copper which gives the coin its typical light-orange shine. This alloy, incidentally, ensures that the coin is damaged less quickly which was necessary to withstand the wear by regular circulation.

Design of the gold 10 French francs

3 different versions of this coin were minted: Napoleon, Ceres & Coq // Marianne. More information about the different designs can be found on the product pages of the 20 French francs - Napoleon, 20 French francs - Ceres and 20 French francs - Rooster // Marianne.

Buying a gold 10 French francs

The 10 French francs and other gold coins are perfectly suitable as a purchase of physical gold. Gold coins are not taxed because they are considered monetary gold. And while all the gold coins offered by Argentor have been tested for authenticity, they are not delivered with a certificate of authenticity. That, unlike gold bars.
