LE NOUVEAU FRANC
Gold coin of 1/4 oz
Proof quality, year 2020
Tribute to a key currency in French history: the New Franc
Historical coin

The Semeuse series presents the coins that have marked the history of France. In 2020 the New Franc is given place of pride. Coin created under the directive of general de Gaulle, the New Franc was introduced to stop the devaluation of the Franc as well as to facilitate the convertibility of the currency, allowing France to participate fully in the launch of the great construction of the European Community.

The reverse evokes the great monetary reform of the Fifth Republic with General de Gaulle, prescriber of this new currency. The face and the reverse of the new francs are therefore depicted, as well as the Marianne of the currencies prior to 1914, synonymous with economic renewal.

The face presents the Semeuse de Roty in a more contemporary setting.
