It’s been a awhile, but I haven’t forgotten. Here’s a coin for today.
France, 50 francs, 1952 (KM #918.1)
This was the highest valued French coin at the time, but a 100-franc coin would debut two years later. Rendered obsolete long ago, these larger 50Fr coins are much less common than the dime-a-dozen 10Fr coins, but with a mintage of 74,211,600, this one is still the most common of its type.
