Napoleon Coin

Posted in European Coins by admin on September 9, 2010 No Comments yet

What is the value and significance of this French Coin?

The front: A picture of Naoleon with the words, "Napoleon III Empereur"
The back: A picture of an eagle with the letter B (or R) underneath it, and the words, "Dix Centires France...." And the rest I can't make out. It is not in amazing shape, as you might infer.
Oh and it's from 1856.

There were 11.3 million of these French bronze 10 centimes coins featuring Emperor Napoleon III (1852-70) minted that year at Marseilles (MA). To the left of the date it has either a dog's head or an anchor as the engraver general's mark. The dogs head collector value may be worth about $1 with heavy wear to around $10 with moderate wear to maybe $30 with light wear while the anchor may be worth about .25, $7, $18 in same conditions as listed above.
You might also try a library for a copy of the Standard Catalog of World Coins for pictures, values and lots more interesting info.
