Although the exact origin of the nationalistic symbol is unknown, it is believed that the word "Gallus," Latin for rooster, was a homonym for the original inhabitants of France, the Gauls. The term was adopted and applied to the nations people as a symbol of their sovereignty and patriotism. The symbol was so deeply ingrained within the people, that the third French republic used it as the symbol of their gold sovereigns from 1899 until 1914. This period was a pivotal one, which brought stability to France, following the fall of their second empire. The rooster is a prevalent theme in French patriotism to this day, as it adorns the crest of both the national rugby and the World Cup champion soccer team. "Le coq Gaulois" also features prominently throughout the nation on monuments, memorials, and gates. This rich history is reflected on this stunning 10 French franc sovereign.
