France 5 Francs  1816 to 1824
France 5 Francs 1816 to 1824

Dear sir! Nice coin. The coin in our picture comes from respected coin dealer Civitas Galleries and is in beautiful shape. It is uncirculated, or nearly so, and as such commands high collector premium. The catalog price of such a coin would top $600 US dollars.

CoinQuest thanks Civitas Galleries for use of their coin image.

With wear, the value goes down. Here are typical catalog values for these 5 franc coins:

worn: $30 US dollars catalog value
average circulated: $100
well preserved: $400
fully uncirculated: $600

Coins with A, B, and W mint marks are more common than the others, and are worth a tad less than the values quoted above.

These are catalog values. Be sure you understand how to convert catalog values to actual values by using our Terminology page.

There are some dates and mint marks which do better than the values cited above. All dates are worth at least as much cited, and these dates are worth more:

1816 to 1823 mint mark BB: $400 average circulated
1816H and 1818H: $350 average circulated
1818I and 1819I: $400 average circulated
1817 to 1823 mint mark MA: $450 average circulated
1820MA: $600 average circulated
1819 to 1821 mint mark Q: $300 average circulated

Coin: 4245 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies
