The Fifth Republic, whose constitution was approved by referendum on September 18, 1958, did not officially begin until January 8, 1959, headed by President General de Gaulle.
This series of 1 Franc Gold coins bearing his effigy, celebrates the 30th anniversary of the creation of the new franc.
This was sometimes called franc Pinay and, more rarely, franc de Gaulle. The abbreviation was “NF” and appeared on all payment vouchers. On January 1, 1960, the new coins and banknotes were put into circulation.

This Gold coin of 1 Franc Charles de Gaulle weighs 9 grams and measures 23.85 mm for a titration of 920/1000.
