France 1, 2, 5, and 10 Centimes 1870 to 1898 | france 2 5 10 1 wreath woman queen star circle starburst pearl bead dot ribbon plant liberte egalite fraternite three I like these old French coins. The designs are full and bold. The one in the picture is a 10 centimes piece which carries some value in better grades. Most of these coins that you see in coin dealer's windows are worn to a frazzle. In this case, value is a few US dollars, less than $5 usually.

Four denominations, the 1, 2, 5, and 10 centimes, were minted in the late 1800s. They all have essentially the same pattern, with the woman on the front and the wreath on the back.

The coin in the picture comes from RicksCoinStop.com. It is in much better shape than most. Rick is selling the coin for $10, and that's a good price.
