1 Franc - Jean -  obverse

Comments

Piece struck at the Brussels mint, made of an alloy of 75% copper and 25% nickel. The weight tolerance is 2.9%.

The acronym I.M.L. below the face value, means "Luxembourg Monetary Institute"
Created in 1983, the IML has, among other things, the task of issuing currencies, managing circulation and monitoring the financial sector. The coins of 1 franc KM#59 and 5 francs KM#60 are thus the first coins issued by the IML.

The reference L#310-2 corresponds to the very rare 1 franc 1986 in polished flan.
