$40.00

One French 5 francs coin, minted between 1824-1830, in Fine or better circulated condition. These coins have seen moderate circulation, but have all of their design features and lettering still well-defined. All of our coins have patina/toning, naturally formed over and have never been cleaned.

Struck during the reign of King Charles X (r. 1824-1830), an ultra-conservative French constitutional monarch.  Assuming the crown of France post-revolution, Charles desired a return to the traditional power and prestige of the monarchy.  He began instituting a series of unpopular royalist policies to that effect.  After liberals gained control in the French parliament, Charles used his emergency powers to suspend the constitution and dissolve the parliament.  This resulted in massive rioting and violence and forced Charles to flee to northern France, where he ultimately renounced all claims to the throne.  But the French still weren't satisfied, and a mob of 14,000 angry Frenchmen forced Charles to flee to Britain with his family. He lived the rest of his life there in exile.
