Token: France (Evreux) Chambre de Commerce 5, 10, and 25 Centimes  1921
Token: France (Evreux) Chambre de Commerce 5, 10, and 25 Centimes 1921

When the Germans pulled out of France after World War I, French money was in short supply. Some cities already had the right to issue banknotes, and those in the occupied zone were able to circulate emergency currency to help commerce get back to normal. The 5, 10, and 25 centimes coins were produced in the city of Evreux for this purpose. Minting in silver or gold was not allowed, but aluminum and aluminum-bronze was ok. Most of these that you see today appear in white aluminum. The aluminum-bronze issues are somewhat more scarce. All of them, however, are quite common and demand is low. Here are approximate catalog values

5, 10, and 25 CENTIMES, WHITE ALUMINUM:
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1
well preserved: $3
fully uncirculated: $6

5, 10, and 25 CENTIMES, ALUMINUM-BRONZE:
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1
well preserved: $4
fully uncirculated: $10

All values on this page are catalog values. Actual buy and sell values will be less. See our Important Terminology page for information about how to interpret catalog values.
