    hi, of all the french silver 5 francs, the 1811 A has been a record issue, 31 041 384 pieces were coined, the next highest is 1873 A 27 192 181 pcs.

    Would be nice to trace from where these enormous amounts came in that year....

    Just speculation, but The War of 1812 was in the future and France was fairly reliable help to the newly established USA. Could it have been silver from the western US as payment for arms?

    They passed a noble law
    Now the trees are all kept equal
    By hatchet, axe and saw.

    I will not comply.

    Despite being so highly minted, they somehow manage to have a pretty high premium over spot. The 1873 A can be had under melt... I've done it a time or two.

    hi, yeah, reality is a funny truth, There is no obvious reason why a huge coinage is more expensive. Probally a lot of them got melted.
    The highest silvercoinages happened during and after the first WW
    The one francs " semeuse" 1916 was coined 92 029 179 pieces !!! a gigantic number.

    I observe that huge amounts of silvercoins were issued in the allied countries as well in the bleakest years of the first as the second WW. Good money has a powerful propaganda value.

    the 1845 W is Lille ( big town in Northern France ) quite a big coinage over 11 million, but there are several coinages of that size.

    It was interesting to hear that these five whatevers were legal tender in the uS at one period. It was easy to calculate the silvervalue, On kilogram of coins contained 40 coins and represented 900 grams of pure silver, I haven't yet calculated why they were at 92 US doollar cents, but will do.

    Ps british shopowners weighed the coppercoinage they received instead of calculating the amount, They had special scales...i have seen them.

    Weighing was easier than calculating....
