Description

About the coin:

The conquest of most of western Europe by revolutionary and Napoleonic France led to the French franc’s wide circulation. In the Austrian Netherlands (the current Belgium), the franc replaced the kronenthaler. This was in turn replaced by the Dutch guilder when the United Kingdom of the Netherlands was formed.
