Dating from the mid-late 19th century Kingdom of Belgium, the Belgian Franc European gold coin features Leopold II, King of the Belgians from 1865 to 1909. Remembered today as the "Builder King" because of the many new buildings he commissioned in Brussels, Ostend and Antwerp, King Leopold II is also known for hiring the famous explorer Henry Morton Stanley to colonize the Congo in 1876. Belgium Franc gold coins are exactly the same size and weight as the extremely popular French 20 Franc Angels but are about three to four times scarcer in the market than Angels, which makes them an outstanding value.
