This type was struck in AH 1337-1339 in the name of Muhammad al-Nasir Bey. By this point in Tunisian history, the Ottomans had lost influence and France had gained control through debt ownership, making the Tunisia a protectorate. Starting in AH 1308 / 1891 AD, all coins began showing both Arabic and French legends, and the denominations became decimal-based. All minting during the French protectorate period occurred in Paris (privy mark).

Recorded mintage: 4,451,000.

Specification: nickel-bronze, holed.
