The nominals for this token coinage are 50 ct, 1 Fr, 2 Fr, 5 Fr, 10 Fr and 20 Fr. The tokens probably had this worth, too, as all countermarks were made beside the denomination, except the pieces of 50 ct, which were too small to do so.

In fact I now have a 50 Centimes [obv ETAT FRANCAIS]

I have bought several of these, some are still winging their way to me from Germany. Getting more expensive with each new listing. Now another seller has appeared on the scene with another twenty coins for sale, this time from a seller in Austria; ten Glorioso islands and ten Juan de Nova Island.

I shall stop buying.   

Do I smell something?  ???

My thoughts are that it's a nice little idea, to get some common French coins and turn them into something valuable.  Where have these been the last 40 years or so ?  Why now ?
always willing to trade modern UK coins for modern coins from elsewhere....

I now have two Reunion coins, 5 and 20 Francs, with the Juan de Nova island SOFIM counter-mark. As they are still on the high seas I am posting the eBay images.

Gerard, pleased to see the house  of Mister Caltaux.
