France, 5 Francs 1873A Unc

In 1870 France became the Republic that we know today. Napoleon III and the Second Empire was no more, France was a Republic. They issued a silver crownsized 5 Francs with the Hercules group on one side and the denomination within a wreath on the other side. The coins on offer were minted in 1873 at the Paris Mint and thus carry the ‘A’ mintmark. Usually, if you are lucky, you see these 5 Francs in Very Fine condition. The coins on offer are in Uncirculated condition with full lustre and of course the usual light bag marks that you expect on coins of this size. We were suprised to find this small group in such wonderful condition, after all they were issued just 3 years after the Republic was formed. They are 146 years old and in Uncirculated condition, a British crown of the same vintage and quality would cost a lot more money.
