Morocco 25 and 50 Centimes and 1 Franc 1921 to 1924 | morocco franc 50 1 25 empire cherifien star starburst nickel year frank moroccan maroc fancs francs centime morroco morrocco moroc Empire Cherifien is an old term used for the French Protectorate of Morocco. Morocco became independent of prior French and Spanish influence in 1956. Until then, coinage was difficult for Westerners to discern because of its Arabic inscriptions and dating system.

Coins with an encircled 5 pointed star on one side were minted in 25 and 50 centime, and 1 franc, denominations from 1921 to 1924. They are made of nickel, except the 25 centimes coin with a round hole at its center is made of copper-nickel.

These are basically modern coins but are interesting for collectors. As always, values improve with condition, and coins with problems, like scratches, stains, cleanings, nicks, gouges, and similar damage, are worth about zero.

Here is a run-down of approximate values:

25 CENTIMES (with hole)
worn: $1 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated (like our picture): $5
well preserved: $10
fully uncirculated: $30

50 CENTIMES
worn: $1 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated (like our picture): $3
well preserved: $6
fully uncirculated: $18

1 FRANC
worn: $1 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated (like our picture): $4
well preserved: $12
fully uncirculated: $30
