It's interesting that both Belgium and France were given a 2 francs liberation coin by the Allies.

Their currencies were still not too far apart at that time. I suspect that it had something to do with the price of beer or cigarettes, which are the first things soldiers may be expected to buy, rather than get from the military...

From what my parents told me, cigarettes were more available with the military than they were through the "normal" civilian circuit. American and Canadian cigarettes were famous.
