I think it is best if you preface your word 'coup' by using the full version first. coup d'etat. 

I believe this is normal in articles and provides some clue to the read about the meaning of the word. Coup by itself isn't what you really mean, but the meaning of it is inferred if you put the compete term earlier in the article.
