France 1850A centime rev DSLR.jpg

This is a scarcer date of a type struck 1848-51 at the Paris mint during the Second Republic of France. It is the hardest to find of the four dates and is priced[1] about three times the common date (1848-A). The catalog mentions a rare variety lacking the accent over the "E" in "REPUBLIQUE." This type is a revival of a bronze centime struck under the First Republic An 6-An 8. The total mintage is nearly 25 million. The type was superseded in 1853 by the Napoleon III bare head centime (which weighed only 1 gram) and was demonetized in 1856.

Recorded mintage: 2,720,626.

Specification: 2 g, bronze, 18 mm diameter, plain edge, design after Augustin Dupré (1748-1833)..

Catalog reference: F.101/5, KM 754.
