Most of the coins in circulation are not of great value. Their goal is to fill the market with a small bargaining chip, which will facilitate settlements between the seller and the buyer. Many countries are trying to issue beautiful coins, but due to the economic component, this is not always appropriate.
But in any country, for solemn events or a significant date, commemorative copies of coins are issued, usually in a small circulation. Here we will talk about such unique and original coins. The most beautiful coins in the world most often end up in the collections of numismatists, and you rarely see them. Let’s try to fill this gap.

On the reverse side was minted the image of Jesus Christ with a halo. On both sides of the oldest coin there were linear or dotted rims.
Beginners in investing often cannot decide which coins are more profitable – silver or gold. Silver is cheaper, but gold is more stable, easier to store, and offers higher returns in the long run.
When comparing two metals, silver loses for 3 reasons:
The increase in its price is unstable, worse predicted and significantly lower compared to gold.
Invested funds will bring a sensitive profit only when a lot with a significant total mass of metal is purchased.
Silver products are more demanding on storage conditions. They quickly oxidize, lose their luster and blacken, which automatically reduces their value.
Coin “French Angel”. France
A beautiful gold coin with a face value of only 20 francs became popular during the French Revolution.
On a small coin, the angel Auguste Dupre is depicted, next to him is the symbol of freedom-loving France – a rooster.

It is especially in demand among investors who want to diversify their portfolios both in terms of design and to attract international traders.
