World gold - 4x 20 franc coins of the Latin Monetary Union Empty World gold - 4x 20 franc coins of the Latin Monetary Union

French, Belgian, Swiss and Italian 20 franc coins.  The LMU spec was based on the French 20 franc and is about 20% smaller than a sovereign.  Quite a few countries joined the Latin Monetary Union, which was founded in the 1860s and went through until WWI killed off the gold standard.

French 20 franc Rooster, Swiss 20 franc Vrenelli, Belgian 20 francs, Italian 20 lire.

I think Umberto's moustache was the model for the Saracen knight in the second issue of Knights of the Past.
