Luxembourg 1 Franc Grand Duchess Charlotte Very Fine

In 1964 Grand Duchess Charlotte of Luxembourg abdicated, though she would live well beyond that until 1985. Charlotte took the throne in 1919 following the abdication of her sister Marie-Adelaide, who was forced to step down over allegations of collaboration with the Germans in World War 1. She led her small nation for 45 years, gaining notoriety for her refusal to deal with the Germans during World War 2 and for her broadcasts to her homeland made during her forced exile. We have found a small number of the last 1 franc coins struck during her reign between 1952 and 1964. The coins show a metal worker and bear Charlotte’s cypher, and come in Very Fine condition.
