1898-1920 France 1 Franc

$8.00

One French 1 franc coin, minted between 1898-1920, in Extra Fine or better circulated condition. These coins have seen light circulation, but the design features and lettering are very well-defined. Our coins have original patina/toning, and have never been cleaned.  

These small silver coins feature the iconic 'Sower' design by Oscar Roty, the source of inspiration for the Walking Liberty half dollar and Saint-Gaudens double eagle designs.
