Product Description

Metals.com is excited to give you more choices from around the world. These Gold Franc issues are produced at the Monnaie de Paris (Paris Mint), an agency of the French government charged with issuing coins as well as producing medals and other similar items. Created in 864, it is the oldest French institution.  

The Monnaie de Paris has minted Gold francs used in circulation before the euro was adopted in 2002.

 

Renowned for its ancient history and world-class creativity, the Monnaie de Paris, or Paris Mint, has more than 12 centuries of working with Precious Metals. It is charged with minting coins for circulation and also manufactures medals, official decorations and collector coins. In addition, the mint casts works of art.

Founded in the year 864, Monnaie de Paris has over 1,150 years of history working with Precious Metals. While the Paris mint may be the only mint authorized to produce circulating coins since 1878, towns and cities have also minted coins since the 9th century.
