France, Set of 4 high denomination old Francs

In the wake of the Second World War high levels of inflation in France led to the withdrawal from circulation of all denominations below 1 franc. By 1950 the larger copper-nickel 10 franc coin had to be replaced by a much smaller one in aluminium bronze, along with 20 and 50 franc coins also struck in aluminium bronze. In 1954 a copper-nickel 100 franc coin was also introduced. We can now offer a set of these four high-denomination coins that circulated until the introduction of the new franc in 1960.

The 1, 2, and 5 dinar coins are written in both Cyrillic and Latin text, all showing the country’s Coat of Arms on the obverse.

France Post-War Aluminium 3 Coin Set

France, Post-War Aluminium 3 Coin Set

These 1, 2 and 5 franc aluminium coins began circulating in newly liberated France in 1945 to replace the ones introduced by the Vichy Regime. Their introduction meant a return of the Republican motto “Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité” (Liberty, Equality, Fraternity) instead of “Travail, Famille, Patrie” (Work, Family, Fatherland) that was brought in under the Occupation. Originally the US planned to introduce its own occupation currency, but the move was blocked by General Charles de Gaulle who saw it as nothing more than “counterfeit money”.
