Coins from Saar

Countries and territoriesGermany › Saar

The Saar is a territory on the western Rhine border of Germany, occupied by France by the Treaty of Versailles in 1919. It was leased to France for 15 years, until a 1935 plebiscite returned the region to Germany. Following the defeat of Nazi Germany in 1945, the Saar was once again given to France as part of reparations, this time for 10 years. In 1954-5, coins in denominations of 10, 20, 50, and 100 francs were minted for the territory, on par with the French Franc, before it was returned to the Federal Republic of Germany (BRD) in 1955 as a sign of goodwill for the creation of the EEC in 1957.
