Napoleon

 

(in French, napoléon d’or), a French gold coin worth 20 francs and containing 5.8 g of pure gold. Minted since 1803, the coin takes its name from the likenesses of Napoleon I and Napoleon III that it displays. Double napoleons (worth 40 francs), half napoleons (worth 10 francs), and quarter napoleons (worth 5 francs) have also been minted. Since the 1950’s, napoleons have been minted by the Bank of France for sale to private gold hoarders. [17–713 -1]

Napoleon

(1769–1821) vanquished most of Europe. [Fr. Hist.: Harvey, 570]
