Buy gold coins issued by the government of France. French gold coins are currently not manufactured, and only backyear coins are available. France make both the Rooster and the Napoleon gold coins, both of which contain 5.8 grams of gold bullion. French gold bullion coins were manufactured from the latter part of the 1800's until the mid 1900's at the Paris Mint. Both are available to investors worldwide for delivery or for Swiss vault storage.
