Banknotes from Belgium

Belgium is a small country located in North-Western Europe comprising of Walloon, Flemish, and German ethnic groups, that is bordering France, the Netherlands, and Germany, known for confectionery and housing the seat of the EU. It was for most of it's history under foreign rule/internal division, until a 1830 uprising resulted in the creation of the nation-state of Belgium, formalized in 1839. The Belgian Franc was part of the Latin Monetary Union founded in 1865, being on par with the French franc among others, but experienced inflation, with zinc coinage being made, during & following it's invasion and occupation by Germany in WWI. The LMU was dissolved in 1927, and the Franc during the interwar years remained somewhat intertwined with the French Franc, with the unit of a Belga (1 Belga= 5 Francs) being introduced in the 1930s. Occupation coins were once again issued in zinc during the German occupation of 1940-44/5 in WWII, with the Franc again reduced in value post-war. Franc coins were briefly issued without a monarch's head in the absence of Léopold III, but continued with modern designs until the adoption of the Euro in 1999.
