Belgium 5 Francs  1941 to 1947
Belgium 5 Francs 1941 to 1947

Belgium has a proud history of nice-looking coins. When the Germans took over during World War II, trashy zinc coins replaced some of the nice ones. These 5 franc coins today look even worse than they did back then. It is almost impossible to find nice-looking examples.

The un-appeal of these coins keep collector values low. Only a few end-of-the-war dates carry decent value. All other dates run roughly like this:

worn: $2 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $4
well preserved: $10
fully uncirculated: $25

More valuable coins are:

1945 with DER BELGEN inscription: $80 in average circulated
1947 with DES BELGES inscription: $50
1947 with DER BENGEN inscription: $500

Coin: 8093 , Genre: Central Europe North South
