France 5, 10, 20, and 50 Centimes 1962 to Date

Hi Carmen -- These coins have been minted since 1962 in aluminum bronze, not gold (shucks!). As such, they are worth face value. There are 100 centimes in a franc, so the 10 centimes is worth one-tenth franc, the 5 centimes is worth one-twentieth franc, and so forth. Use to do exchange rate calculations.

If you have an absolutely, fully uncirculated example of one of these coins with exceptional eye appeal, a keen collector might pay one or two US Dollars to add it to their collection.

Some of the latest dates of these coins were only released in collector sets, and are slightly more rare. If you have one of these coins in a collector set, figure a catalog value of about $3.

Coin: 858 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies
