France 1854A 50 centimes rev DSLR.jpg

This dime-sized coin was struck at Paris under the régime of Napoleon III (1852-70). It is a slightly better date of a type struck 1853-63. This type is distinguished from the later type (F.188) of 1864-69 by the absence of a laurel wreath on the emperor's head. It was demonetized in France in 1869. The catalog[3] notes 16 dates for the type, some very rare. This date is priced about 33% more than the commonest date (1858A).

Recorded mintage: 1,038,981[3].

Specification: 2.5 g, .900 fine silver, 18 mm diameter, reeded edge. It was designed by Jean-Jacques Barre, 1793-1855.

Catalog reference: F.187/2, KM 794.1.
