France 1938 25 centimes rev DSLR.jpg

This specimen is a common date of a series struck 1938-40 during the waning years of the French Third Republic. It superseded a similar coin struck in copper-nickel 1917-37. The addition of zinc made the coin cheaper to strike. This design was also used for similar five and ten centime pieces; the central hole kept it from being confused with higher denominations with similar diameters. This coin is very common in circulated condition but hard to find choice.

Recorded mintage: 5,170,366[1].

Specification: 4 g, "maillechort" (67 Cu-15 Ni-18 Zn), 24 mm diameter, plain edge, designed by E. E. Lindauer (1869-1942).

Catalog reference: F.172/3, KM 867b.
