France - Euro Coin Sets

France Started Using The Euro on January 1st 2002:


Cover of Official French Euro Coin Set


On new year's day 2002, France, like the other 11 members of the Eurozone, started using Euro notes and Euro coins for cash transactions. Within a few months, the old coins and banknotes in Francs have been withdrawn. We have uncirculated sets from each of the twelve countries in stock now for immediate delivery.

Packaging & Presentation:
We have uncirculated mint sets of coins from all 12 Euro zone countries in stock now for immediate delivery.. Our French Euro sets are packaged in an attractive card within a 2-sided plastic case so that the coins can be viewed from both sides or removed if required. We have information about official issue mint or proof sets. All of the countries will issue uncirculated sets, but many will not issue proof sets. Our own sets are attractively housed in a clear plastic case so that the coins can be viewed from both sides. Our photograph above shows the folder for the official set from the Paris Mint.
