France 1894A 50 centimes rev DSLR.jpg

This dime-sized coin was struck at Paris during the Third Republic of France (1870-1940). It is a common date of a type struck 1871-95. All issues are Paris mint except for the Bordeaux mint (mintmark "K") issues of 1871-73. Like all fifty centimes struck after 1864, the fineness was only .835. It was demonetized in 2005 but ceased to circulate in the 1920's. The catalog[1] notes 16 dates for the type, three dates (1873-K, 1878-A and 1889-A) are rare. This date is common in all grades.

Recorded mintage: 3,600,000.

Specification: 2.5 g, .835 fine silver, 18 mm diameter, reeded edge. It was designed by Eugène André Oudiné, 1810-1887. This head of Cérès was originally used on the fifty centimes of 1849-51.

Catalog reference: F.189/15, KM 834.1.
