The French Franc was the currency of France from 1795 until 2002, when it was replaced by the Euro. The franc was first struck as a gold coin under Jean le Bon in the 14th century, and later adopted as a basic denomination in the French Republic and its colonies. The name ‘franc’ derives from the original Latin inscription on the coin, FRANCORUM REX, ‘King of the Franks’.
