France, 10 francs, 1948

Sorry for the month-long update outage. Life gets in the way. I was feeling overwhelmed by my daily upkeep, and my Coin of the Day feature was an easy thing to trim. But here’s at least one update for now.

France, 10 francs, 1948 (KM #909.1)

Unlike the ten franc coin featured in the last update in April, this one is from the old franc era before 1960, the same as the 20 franc coin from March 19th. Twice demonetized, it has no legal tender value left, and with a mintage of 155,945,000 is not a valuable numismatic item either.

Metal Copper-nickel
Weight 7 g
Diameter 26 mm
