Sincona sale 18, lot 2331
This specimen was lot 2331 in Sincona sale 18 (Zurich, May 2014), where it sold for CHF 9,500 (about US$12,518 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"100 Francs 1894. Paris Sehr selten, nur 143 Exemplare geprägt. Fast vorzüglich-vorzüglich. (France, third republic, hundred francs of 1894, Paris mint, very rare, only 143 pieces struck. Nice extremely fine.)"
This type was struck 1878-1906. In 1907, the edge lettering was changed to read LIBERTE EGALITE FRATERNITE. The mintage of all gold coinage was suspended in 1914. Of the three types of large gold hundred francs, 346,000 were struck of Napoleon III "bare head," 97,000 were struck of Napoleon III "laureate head," and 274,000 were struck of the "génie." Most survivors are bagmarked AU.
