History

 

 

Ceres depicted on the French 20 franc gold coin

France in the 19th century was often troubled by domestic political instability. In 1848 she went through the February Revolution which led to the overthrow of the ruling King Louis Philippe, and Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte, nephew and heir of Napoleon I, was elected as president of the new French Republic. The new French Ceres 20 franc gold coin was introduced during Louis Bonaparte’s second year in power and was subsequently minted until 1851. Surprisingly, the new gold franc coin did not picture an effigy of the ruler himself, which had been the case with the previous 20 franc gold coins, but rather depicted the motif of Ceres, the Roman goddess of agriculture. The French 20 franc Ceres gold coin was predominately struck at the Paris Mint.
