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.
