Details & Specifications

The French 1 Franc Silver Coin was struck initially as a standard circulation coin from 1898 to 1920. The coins were minted from .8349 fine silver with a fine metal content of .1342 troy oz of pure silver. They are government issued legal tender carrying a face value of 1 Franc.

The obverse of the 1 Franc coin features a woman sowing seeds in a field with the sun setting over the horizon behind her. The woman represents the French Republic, much the same as Lady Liberty represents American freedoms. Along the sides of the rim it reads, "Republique Francaise," or, "French Republic." On the reverse of the coin is a detailed rendition of an olive branch. The phrase, "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity," adorns the rim in French. The date of issue is located on the very bottom. The denomination of, "1 Franc," is struck in large letters above the olive branch.

The "Republic Sowing" design, as this coin is known, is said to have greatly influenced that of the American "Walking Liberty" design.

Coins will vary from 1898 to 1920, randomly, depending on stock.
