Coins of Louis XVIII

Louis XVIII, who reigned as King of France from 1814 to 1824 (excluding the Hundred Days period in 1815), oversaw the minting of various coins during his reign. Here are some key types of coins minted during Louis XVIII's reign:

Gold 20 Francs: Gold 20 Francs coins were issued during Louis XVIII's reign and were commonly used for larger transactions. These coins typically featured Louis XVIII's portrait on the obverse and various designs on the reverse, depending on the issue and mint.

Gold 40 Francs: Similar to the 20 Francs coins, gold 40 Francs coins were also minted during Louis XVIII's reign. These larger denomination coins were less common but were still used for significant transactions.

Silver 5 Francs: Silver 5 Francs coins were widely circulated during Louis XVIII's reign and served as a standard unit of currency for everyday transactions. They typically featured Louis XVIII's portrait on the obverse and various designs on the reverse, such as the coat of arms or allegorical motifs.

Silver 2 Francs: Silver 2 Francs coins were of lower denomination than the 5 Francs coins but were still widely used in commerce. They featured similar designs to the 5 Francs coins but with a lower silver content and smaller size.

Copper Coins: Copper coins of various denominations were also minted during Louis XVIII's reign to facilitate smaller transactions. These coins included 1 Centime and 5 Centimes coins, which featured simple designs and were used for everyday purchases.

Restoration Coinage: Louis XVIII's reign marked the restoration of the French monarchy following the Napoleonic Wars. Coins minted during this period often bore inscriptions or symbols celebrating the restoration of the Bourbon dynasty and the return to stability after years of turmoil.
