In 1954 there was an "Essai" edition (trial) of the first three values (10, 20, 50 francs). The word "Essai" was stamped under the country name "Saarland", the front remained unchanged. The circulation was 1,100 pieces each, the coins were in sets in a plastic frame with the inscription "Monnaie de Paris" (Paris Mint).
