France Indo China 1 Cent  1896 to 1939
France Indo China 1 Cent 1896 to 1939

The modern countries of Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia were called French Indo China until 1954. They had interesting coinage, and lubbug's specimen is one of the few with actual Chinese lettering.

Here are some approximate catalog values for these coins. Remember that 'catalog' value is not the same thing as actual buy and sell values. To translate between these values, see our Important Terminology page (link at upper left).

worn: $2 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $8
well preserved (like our photo): $20
fully uncirculated: $80

These are average values. Adjust them, if necessary, using the following rules:

1. Coins dated 1909 and 1923: multiply by 10
2. Coins dated 1908: multiply by 5
3. Coins dated 1898, 1916, 1918, 1927: multiply by 3
4. Coins dated 1896, 1897, 1899: divide by 2
5. Coins dated after 1919: divide by 2

Coin: 5842 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies
