The creation of the first 20-franc gold coin is credited to Napoleon I, who ordered its minting on 28 March 1803. The first 20-franc coins bore an image of Napoleon I. These coins weigh 6.45 grams and are 900/1000 pure (90% fine gold, 10% copper). All Napoleons have a diameter of 21 millimetres.
Napoleons continued to be minted until 1914 and their variants illustrate the political changes in France until the First World War. Production of 20-franc Napoleons was interrupted by the outbreak of the Second World War.
Napoleons are one of the strongest symbols of French monetary stability in the 19th century and these 20-franc gold coins are highly sought-after today by collectors and investors. The numismatic value of some of these coins far exceed the value of their weight as gold.
VAT: Gold (and additional services such as delivery, certificate of authenticity, etc.) is exempt from value added tax (VAT) in Switzerland and the European Union.
Silver (and additional services such as delivery, certificate of authenticity, etc.) is taxed at 7,7% in Switzerland, whether ingots or coins. In some European countries, the VAT rate is lower for coins than for ingots. In other European countries it is identical. In France, for example, the same rate applies to silver ingots and coins.

If delivery is in Switzerland, Swiss VAT applies to silver (but gold is exempt). If delivery is to outside Switzerland, the customs duties and VAT of the destination country apply and must be paid by the recipient upon receiving the parcel.
