France 100 Francs 1954 to Date
100 francs used to be a boatload of money. France first issued 100 franc coins in .900 fine gold in 1855. They were big, bold, and contained 0.933 troy ounces of pure gold. At today's (Oct 2010) market price of gold, around $1300 US dollars per ounce (look it up on kitco.com), that's 0.933 x 1300 = $1212 US dollars of gold in one 100 franc coin.
