Tunisian Gold Coins

Gold Tunisia Francs


T he franc served a role as Tunisia's national currency for 67 years from 1891. The Tunisian Gold francs is available in 10, 20 and 100 denominations and was on par with the Gold French Franc during its use

This meant that the Gold Tunisian 10 franc was struck to be the same size and Gold purity as its French counterpart, the same holding for the Gold 20 franc coins. Prior to the Tunisian franc, Tunisia used the rial. After the franc was discontinued the dinar became the nation's currency and remains until this day, the franc is a reminder of Tunisia's rich history

The adoption of the franc as a currency was due to Tunisia being ruled by France at the time. Having an equivalent currency would have made trade seamless between the two nations

The Tunisian Gold francs were struck in accordance with the Latin Currency union specifications for coinage at the time, with each coin containing a minimum of 90% fine Gold whilst the remainder of the alloy was made from copper to add to the coin's durability whilst in circulation. Tunisia Gold francs are not common in the market and trade at modest premiums
