French 20 Franc Gold Rooster (1901-1914)
Fractional Gold Coins that are 22 kt pure gold, just like the Krugerrand and Gold Eagle. They were meant for circulation. With .1867 troy ounces of pure gold, they are about the size of a penny. They come individually or in tubes of 40 (About 7.468 Ounces of Pure Gold per tube).
Pros: Low premium over spot and less expensive than US Gold Coins. Practical liquidation and emergency use versus a 1 ounce gold coin. One Rooster would have bought the equivalent of $373 of goods in 1913, the year the Federal Reserve was created. Meant for circulation. Universally recognized. Foreign currency with historic value gives it double protection in the event of confiscation.
Cons: None noted
