Gold bullion coins that once served as circulation coinage throughout the world are now popular among investors and collectors alike. These coins offer lower premiums as former circulation pieces but still contain valuable gold content. Silver coins are less prominent but do exist. One such example of the Silver Franc of Belgium. Today, Silver 5 Francs Coins from Belgium are available to you online at Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Ships to you sealed inside of protective plastic flip!
  • Issued initially between 1832 and 1876!
  • Consists of .8037 Troy ounces of actual silver content.
  • The face value of 5 Francs was fully backed by the Kingdom of Belgium.
  • On the obverse is an effigy of Leopold I or Leopold II of Belgium.
  • The reverse side includes either a wreath and legend or the coat of arms for the kingdom.

Belgium’s history is complex, and so too is that of its coinage. The nation used the French Franc denomination for years because the era of Napoleonic Wars had seen France engulf most of the territory now known as the nation of Belgium. For a period of time, Belgium was also part of the Netherlands.

All of the Silver 5 Francs Coins in this listing come from Belgium and were originally struck between 1832 and 1876. The Silver 5 Franc coin was no longer struck after 1876, but it was still widely accepted through the 1930s before it was removed from circulation. The coins in this listing come from the 19th-century issue period mentioned above. Each coin arrives in protective plastic and has varying designs.

The Silver 5 Francs issued during the reign of Leopold I, King of the Belgians, include his portrait on one side and a legend on the other side. The obverse features the left-profile portrait of a young Leopold I with a wreath crown, the man who claimed the throne of the Kingdom of Belgium when it gained independence in 1830. The reverse of 5 Francs silver coins for sale from his reign includes a wreath of oak leaves surrounding the engravings of “5 Francs,” a date mark, and a five-pointed star.

Following Leopold I’s death, his son Leopold II became the second King of the Belgians. The Silver 5 Francs from his reign include a left-profile portrait of an older Leopold II with no crown. The reverse of coinage from his era includes the image of the crowned royal arms of the Kingdom of Belgium and a face value of “5” “F” split on either side of the shield. The date mark is below the shield.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
