France 50 Centimes and 1 and 2 Francs 1931 to 1959
France issued coins with this pattern in three denominations and two metals: 50 centimes, 1 franc, and 2 francs denominations, and aluminum-bronze and aluminum metals. Most *common dates* of these old French coins carry little value, less than $1 US dollar in worn condition. If you can find one in fully uncirculated condition, the catalog value rises to $5 to $15. Your coin, sir or madam, dated 1941, is a common date.
These coins were minted in aluminum and aluminum-bronze, the latter sometimes mistaken for gold.
Below are the better dates and mint marks. If you have one of these special coins, you are doing a little better than the common date coins cited in the opening paragraph above.
