Here’s an unusual opportunity to add nine obsolete WWII-era French coins to your collection, including two struck by the Vichy government that was sympathetic to the Nazis. Minted in a variety of metals – nickel, brass, zinc and aluminum – these coins were issued starting in 1939 when Germany invaded France to start WWII. In 1943-44, Vichy France changed the country’s motto of “Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité” (liberty, equality, fraternity) to “Travail, Famille, Patrie” (work, family, fatherland) on the 50 centime and 2 franc coins in this set. Sure to add interest to your collection, SAVE off single coin prices when you order these affordable WWII coins.
