France 5 Francs  1933 to 1952
France 5 Francs 1933 to 1952

I like French coins. The designs are always interesting, artistic, and well done. This design is no exception.

This is a complicated series of coins. It runs from 1933 to 1952 with the same patterns on front and back, but several variations apply. Some coins are made out of nickel, others aluminum, and still others aluminum-bronze. Also, some coins have mint marks and others do not.

In general, for most coins except those noted below, here are approximate catalog values:

worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $2
well preserved: $3
fully uncirculated: $8

There are several special coins which are worth more, sometimes much more, than these general values. The following list shows catalog values for coins in well preserved condition.

1936: $1200 US dollars in well preserved condition
1937: $120 well preserved
1938 in nickel: $50
1938 in aluminum-bronze: $20
1939 in nickel: $2000
1939 in aluminum-bronze: $12
1945C in aluminum-bronze: $20
1945C in aluminum: $30
1946C in aluminum-bronze: $20
1946C in aluminum: $40
1947 in aluminum-bronze: $400
1948: $10
1948B: $100
1952: $100

If your coins does not appear in the 'special' list above, it is worth the general value shown above.

Coin: 1184 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies
