THE LAST FRANC  Before the Euro was introduced, France "waved" goodbye to the Franc with a remarkable, award-winning commemorative

Panda America is proud to offer our V.I.P. customers the ULTIMATE FRANC, the last coin issued by France to carry the Franc denomination. A remarkable commemorative honoring the nation's monetary heritage, the Ultimate Franc was issued on September 15, 2001, just 3 months before December 31, 2001 when all French coins were converted to Euros. With a tiny mintage of only 5,000 gold coins, they quickly sold out from the Paris Mint and in the process developed a reputation for beauty and simplicity - in fact this coin WON the COIN OF THE YEAR AWARD for coins issued in the year 2001!! We are pleased to offer this award winning coin on a strict, first come, first served basis.

GOLD UNCIRCULATED COIN

The Paris Mint worked with award winning French art designer Philippe Starck to sculpt the Ultimate Franc into a modern day coin masterpiece. The coin has a 33 mm diameter (larger than a ten dollar gold coin), and is made from 26.1 grams of 750 fine gold. This is a coin unlike any other coin ever made, as the distinctive profile of the coin is SHAPED like a WAVE, unlike the traditional flat profile.

The face of the coin indicates only the denomination with "1" on the obverse and "un ultime franc" on the reverse. Most of the inscriptions that one would expect to find on a coin - the date, country and motto - are inscribed on the edge:

"2001 · REPUBLIQUE FRANCAISE ·
LIBERTE · EGALITE · FRATERNITE
"

We expect our remaining supply to sell out quickly, so act now! Call Panda America at 1-800-472-6327 or visit our website at www.PandaAmerica.com
