Exchange your French Franc banknotes

The French Franc has a long history dating back to the 14th century ad is one of the world’s oldest currencies. It was King John II who first introduced the currency in 1360. The Franc then remained in circulation until 2002 when it was placed by the Euro. In 1960 the new Franc (FRF) was minted and 100 old francs were worth one new franc. Prior to the introduction of the Euro as the official currency of France, the French Franc banknotes in circulation were the 20, 50, 100, 200 and 500 Franc notes.
