2001 Gold Ultimate Franc coin

On the eve of converting the French economy to the Euro in 2002, the Paris Mint produced "un ultime franc" - the Ultimate (or Last) Franc.  Minted in both gold and silver, these Philippe Marck-designed coins had purposefully warped planchets and a minimalist appearance, making for a unique coin to mark the end of a coinage that began in 1630. Made of .750 fineness gold with an AGW of .6293 ozt, each 2001 Gold Ultimate Franc (KM#1290a) comes in a Monnaie de Paris presentation box with certificate of authenticity. The 2001 Gold Ultimate Franc was limited to a mintage of 5000 coins.
