last one France 1814 A 20 Francs

First year for Louis XVIII-I thought this had an attractive patina worthy of submission even though it is not a condition rarity. I like the coin . the image and the grade outcome. Seems French gold from this time frame may not attract the attention it deserves

    nice coin, I especially like the font of the 1814, where can I get that?

    I suspect a larger Gold bullion dealer that handles European gold should be able to offer one to you. It is not all that rare, but there is something special in that 1814 is the first year coinage for the reign of Louis XVIII which was interrupted by the 100 Days in 1815

    edited to add- the 1814 A is fairly affordable

    edited again to add- I believe the date font was used for 1814 and 1815 - changed in 1816
