The rooster is one of the French symbol, it appeared on coins since the 20th century. One of the most famous, the "Marianne au coq" coin was put in circulation for the first time in 1898. It was drafted by jules Clément Chaplain (1839-1909) and exhibits a standing rooster on its downside, carrying some herbage and flowers.
