France (Oceania Polynesia) 50 Centimes and 1, 2, and 5 Francs 1949 to Date
These are aluminum coins made by France for her overseas territories. The earlier issues carry inscription ETABLISSEMENTS FRANCAIS DE L'OCANIE while the later ones proclaim POLYNESIE FRANCAISE.
Since these are modern coins made out of non-precious metal, they are not worth very much. All denominations are worth less than $1 US dollar unless they are in fully uncirculated condition, in which case they catalog around $5.
