A similar 5 francs coin, in brass, was issued from 1986 to 1988.

From 1987 to 1989, a new nickel 50 francs coin was issued. It had a polygonal inner rim.

In 1988 a smaller lighter 1 franc coin was issued.

This time it was made of nickel-plated steel, instead of copper-nickel.

This was the final version of the 1 franc coin, and it was minted through to 1995.

A similar 5 francs was issued from 1989 to 1995.

It was made of aluminium-nickel-bronze.

Note the spelling, in German dialect, of the country name on these last two coins.

The official spelling has been changed from 'Letzeburg' to 'Lëtzebuerg'.​

Apart from the changed legends on the reverse, in every other respect it was the same as the previous version.

The final coin in this series, the 20 francs coin, was issued in 1990 through to 1995.

After 1995, no more circulation coins were minted.
