The Franc was once among the most circulated currencies on the European continent. Introduced by France in the 1790s, the Franc currency was used in two different waves through the late 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. Francs were issued in gold, silver, copper, bronze, and modern cupro-nickel alloys over more than 160 years of coining by the Paris Mint in France. Now, 5 Francs Silver France Coins are available to you for purchase online at Silver.com.

France introduced the franc denomination following the Monetary Law passed in August 1795. The franc replaced the livre, or pound, with units divided into tenths and hundredths. The first francs issued in Franc were copper coins with two denominations each in the tenths and hundredths units. These coins were only struck through 1801 however.

Starting in 1801 and expanding throughout the remainder of the 19th century, the Paris Mint began to strike francs in silver and gold denominations. Silver denominations emerged starting in 1801 with the 5 Franc. These coins were struck by France through the Consulship period, the rise of the Napoleonic Empire, the Second Republic, the Second Empire under Napoleon III, and the Third Republic. The last of the original 5 Francs Silver coins were issued in the 1880s. In the 1960s, the modern French Republic issued 5 Francs Silver coins in the New Franc currency, but only did so through 1969.

In the obverse design element, 5 Francs Silver France Coins feature varying images of French leaders. During the Napoleonic Empire, France issued the coins with effigies of Napoleon Bonaparte. When Louis Philippe I reigned as the final King of France from 1830 to 1848, he appeared in right-profile relief on the obverse. Napoleon III appeared on the coins throughout the Second Republic and Second Empire. The modern New Franc version from the 1960s had the female La Semeuse figure on the obverse.

Designs on the reverse of the 5 Francs Silver France Coins were largely the same over the course of the 160 years the coins were in production. The original Francs featured the date and denomination in the center with a laurel wreath surrounding. The New Francs had the denomination above a cluster of three springs (oak, olive, and acorn), with the date below.

5 Francs Silver France Coins listed here come in individual plastic flips. The coins of the original franc had 25 Gram weights with 90% silver content.

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.

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?
