Comments

Weight between 9g and 11g
There are single-sided obverse proofs, single-sided reverse proofs and the unadopted proof pictured on the numista sheet.

In 1837 - 1838, Prince Honoré V organized a monetary competition between M. Borrel and E. Rogat. Rogat.
The competition was won by the former.
In the 2nd half of the 19th century, the Belgian C. Würden, using the hallmarks of the Rogat project, had a wide range of coins minted by the Menning Frères workshop in Brussels.
These coins have never circulated as official specie, but given the interest shown in them by collectors, they are listed in the Gadoury.
There are 1/4, 1/2, 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 40 franc coins in silver, gold, copper, pewter, bronze and white metal, struck on both sides, single-sided obverse or single-sided reverse.
