The New franc of the French Fifth Republic was introduced in 1960. The currency was redenominated that year after suffering from more than two centuries of inflation. The coins were struck from 1960 to 2001 and removed from circulation and production with the debut of the Euro in 2002.

The obverse side of 5 Francs Silver France Coins comes with a popular depiction of Le Semeuse. The Sower, as she is known, was designed by Oscar Roty in 1897 and debuted on the silver coins of the Third French Republic. The Sower appeared on Silver Francs from 1897 to 1911 and was then revived for these silver coins in 1960.

On the reverse field of the 5 Francs Silver France Coin is a depiction of various sprigs. Included in the design are sprigs of wheat, acorns, and olives, with the national motto, date mark, and face value all included within the design element. The coins have an edge-lettering as well that also has the national motto. Available until 1969, 5 Francs Silver France Coins were replaced by a cupronickel alloy in 1970.
