The 20 Francs Belgium Gold Coin holds a special place in history, dating back to 1865 during the reign of King Leopold II. As a standard currency in Belgium and several other European countries, these coins played a vital role in the establishment of the Latin Monetary Union. This international treaty aimed to standardize and stabilize monetary systems among member states, including Belgium, France, Switzerland, and Italy.

Obverse

The obverse of these exquisite 20 Francs Belgium Gold Coins features a bust of King Leopold II, who remains the longest-reigning monarch in Belgian history. Inscriptions may vary slightly, but most read LEOPOLD II and ROI DES BELGES. The date mark of the individual coins will feature on this side as well.

Reverse

The reverse of the 20 Francs Belgium Gold Coin proudly displays the majestic coat of arms of the Kingdom of Belgium, featuring a left-facing rampant lion as its prominent design element. Inscriptions will likely include L’UNION FAIT LA FORCE and 20 FR.

History

As part of the Latin Monetary Union, member countries agreed to mint gold coins with a standard weight and fineness. The 20 Francs Gold Coin was one of the key denominations used in the union. The 20 Francs Gold Coin was minted with a consistent weight of 6.45 grams and a gold fineness of .900 (90% pure gold) across all participating member states. This uniformity allowed the coins to circulate seamlessly within the member countries, promoting cross-border trade and economic cooperation.

Ordering

To ensure their preservation, each 20 Francs Belgium Gold Coin comes in protective flips and is classified as About Uncirculated (AU) condition. This means you can expect coins with extremely light wear or only trace friction on the highest relief points, and they may feature medium to near-full mint luster.
