France 25 Centimes 1903 to 1905
The coins in this series dated 1904 and 1905 look like the coin in the picture to the right. In 1903, the mint used a different reverse, shown to the left. All three years of these coins, minted in nickel, catalog as follows:
worn condition: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1
well preserved: $3
fully uncirculated: $20
For coins dated 1905, multiply the above values by 1.5
If you have a coin dated 1904 which looks like the 1903 coin with a huge numeral 25, then it catalogs at $200 dollars when uncirculated!
These are catalog values. Refer to our Important Terminology page for an explanation about what 'catalog value' means. It might be different than you expect!
