France, 1 franc, 1973

It’s another French franc, similar to yesterday’s coin.

France, 1 franc, 1973 (KM #925.1)

This is the “normal” French franc that was made between 1960 and 2001, alongside which yesterday’s commemorative franc is meant to circulate. The sower design dates back to the 1890s, and has become a national emblem of France; the sower is still depicted on some French euro coins. Mintage is 70,000,000.
