France 1919 25 centimes rev DSLR.jpg

This specimen is a better date of a series struck in France 1917-37 during and after World War One. It superseded a 25 centimes struck in nickel 1914-17. The nickel twenty-five centimes of 1917 is rare and is distinguished by an underline inside the "C" of "CMES". During the war, the five and ten centimes denominations were also switched to this Lindauer design with the hole. This coin is very common in circulated condition but hard to find choice.

Recorded mintage: 5,106,398[1].

Specification: 5 g, copper-nickel, 24 mm diameter, plain edge, designed by E. E. Lindauer (1869-1942).

Catalog reference: Gad-380, F.171/3, KM 867a.
