A few months ago I started to put a list together of coins not in Krause, however it took up a lot of time checking on Numismaster so I gave up.  Once I have the new book in print I'll resume....

Please keep posting your questions Gerard as there are a lot of knowledgeable posters here, often a simple question turns into an interesting thread :)

What are the two metals? Is one magnetic and the other not? Is the weight different? When was the change made?

I think the one on left is Cu-Ni,while the other is nickel brass/(brass plated steel ???).Just a guess from their appearance,of course. ::)

Cu-Ni s not magnetic, steel is. Could you try that out? Do you know when the change took place?

Krause calls the early 100 Fr Nickel-Bronze, whilst the central bank calls the new coins Nickel-Copper and Aluminium.

I think the change was in 2005 - I did have one of each date at one time but I've given them away.

The last year of the old metal was 2005.
2006 (and 2007) have the new metal.

I know, because someone was so kind to give them to me ...  ;D

So the final metal compositions are:
Old (before 2005)-Nickel Bronze
New (2005-date)-Nickel Copper Aluminum(Sounds strange ???)

Am I correct? ;D

Well that's what the central bank says the current coins are, it may of course be referring to the old composition....

In addition to my list of missing French Polynesian dates above, plus the 100 Fr change don't forget to tell them that in 2006 the New Caledonia 100 Fr changed too.... (though I can only confirm the 2006 issue)
