Historical Significance of the 20 French Francs Cérès Gold Coin

The 20 Francs Cérès Gold Coin was minted during a pivotal moment in French history. In 1848, France experienced a dramatic shift as King Louis-Philippe’s monarchy was overthrown and the Second French Republic was established. This period of societal and political upheaval led to a complete redesign of French currency, including the introduction of the Cérès 20 Francs gold coin.

  • Design Change: Prior to 1849, French Franc gold coins featured portraits of the reigning monarch. However, the 20 Francs Cérès Coin marked a significant departure from this tradition. The obverse side of the coin now features Cérès, the Greek goddess of agriculture, symbolizing fertility and motherhood. This design choice represented the ideals of the new Republic and signified a break from the monarchy.
  • Reverse Design: The reverse side of the coin displays a laurel wreath encircling the motto “Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité” (Liberty, Equality, Brotherhood). This emblematic phrase captured the core values of the Second French Republic and celebrated the democratic aspirations of the era.

Features of the 20 French Francs Cérès Gold Coin

Here are the key features of the 20 Francs Cérès 2nd Republic Gold Coin:

  • Obverse Side: The obverse features a detailed portrait of Cérès, the Roman goddess of agriculture. Her serene and dignified appearance symbolizes the Republic’s commitment to renewal and prosperity.
  • Reverse Side: The reverse showcases a laurel wreath with the motto “Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité” prominently displayed. This design element reflects the ideals of the French Revolution and the principles of the Republic.
