Own the lucky Gold coin that no fighter pilot would be without


Own the lucky Gold coin that no fighter pilot would be without

• A lucky Gold coin struck in France over 100 years ago

• Held by fighter pilots for luck in battle

• A stunning coin struck from 22 Carat Gold

• Very difficult to find and scarcely seen in the UK

Why I recommend the 20F French Lucky Angel Gold Coin…

The French Gold Angel has been classed as a lucky coin for generations. From the middle of the 19th century, captains rarely went to sea without one and French pilots seldom took flight without a gold Angel coin in their pocket during the First World War.

In fact, World War I fighter pilots from France, Britain, and the United States carried the coins into battle with them – a tradition that carries on to this day.

Rumour even has it that Napoleon lost his "Lucky Angel" the night before his defeat at the Battle of Waterloo...

It's a beautiful and fascinating coin, which is very hard to source.
