France (Somaliland) 1, 2, 5 Francs  1948 to 1965
France (Somaliland) 1, 2, 5 Francs 1948 to 1965

French Solmaliland is a small territory of France located in Africa east of Ethiopia at the Bab el Mandeb Strait across from Yemen. These coins were minted in aluminum between 1948 and 1965 with French Marianne on the front and a cool antelope pattern on the back. All dates are low-value, but the earlier dates command good prices when fully uncirculated. Here are some typical catalog values based on auction results (some catalogs over-value these coins):

1 FRANC DATED BEFORE 1950:
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1
well preserved: $4
fully uncirculated: $50

2 FRANCS DATED BEFORE 1950:
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1
well preserved: $5
fully uncirculated: $85

5 FRANC DATED BEFORE 1950:
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1
well preserved: $5
fully uncirculated: $55

1, 2, 5 FRANCS DATED AFTER 1950:
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: less than $1
well preserved: $1
fully uncirculated: $3

To reach values above $2, coins must be absolutely fully uncirculated with no trace of damage, scratches, cleanings, nicks, etc.
