It was reintroduced in decimal form in The NF designation was continued for a few years before the currency returned to being simply the franc; some mostly older French continued to reference and value items in terms of the old franc equivalent to the new centime until the introduction of the euro in for accounting purposes and for coins and banknotes.
The French franc was a commonly held international reserve currency of reference in the 19th and 20th centuries. John's son, Charles Vcontinued this type.
It was copied exactly at Brabant and Cambrai and, with the arms on the horse cloth changed, at Flanders. John II, however, was not able to strike enough francs to pay his ransom and he voluntarily returned to English captivity. Charles V pursued a policy of reform, including stable coinage. In the accompanying deflation both prices and wages fell, but wages fell faster and debtors had to settle up in better money than they had borrowed.
The franc fared better. It became associated with money stable at one livre tournois. Henry III exploited the association of the franc as sound money worth one livre tournois when he sought to stabilize French currency in By this time, inflows of gold and silver from Spanish America had caused inflation throughout the world economy and the kings of France, who weren't getting much of this wealth, only made things worse by manipulating the values assigned to their coins.
The States General which met at Blois in added to the public pressure to stop currency manipulation. Henry III agreed to do this and he revived the franc, now as a silver coin valued at one livre tournois.
Nevertheless, the name "franc" continued in accounting as a synonym for the livre tournois. This was slightly less than the livre of 4. Silver coins now had their denomination clearly marked as "5 FRANCS" and it was made obligatory to quote prices in francs. The franc became the official currency of France in Coinage with explicit denominations in decimal fractions of the franc also began in France led the world in adopting the metric system and it was the second country to convert from a non-decimal to a decimal currency, following Russia's conversion in and the third country to adopt a decimal coinage, also following the United States in The circulation of this metallic currency declined during the Republic: the old gold and silver coins were taken out of circulation and exchanged for printed assignatsinitially issued as bonds backed by the value of the confiscated goods of churches, but later declared as legal tender currency.
The withdrawn gold and silver coins were used to finance wars and to import food, which was in short supply. As during the " Mississippi Bubble " in —, too many assignats were put in circulation, exceeding the value of the "national properties", and the coins, due also to military requisitioning and hoarding, rarefied to pay foreign suppliers.
With national government debt remaining unpaid, and a shortage of silver and brass to mint coins, confidence in the new currency declined, leading to hyperinflation, more food riots, severe political instability and termination of the First French Republic and the political fall of the French Convention. Then followed the economic failure of the Directoire : coins were still very rare.Both currencies are guaranteed by the French treasury.
Although separate, the two CFA franc currencies have always been at parity and are effectively interchangeable. On 22 Decemberit was announced that the West African currency would be replaced by an independent currency to be called Eco.
CFA francs are used in fourteen countries: twelve nations formerly ruled by France in West and Central Africa excluding Guinea and Mauritaniawhich withdrewplus Guinea-Bissau a former Portuguese colonyand Equatorial Guinea a former Spanish colony. These fourteen countries have a combined population of The currency has been criticized for making economic planning for the developing countries of French West Africa all but impossible since the CFA's value is pegged to the euro whose monetary policy is set by the European Central Bank.
When France ratified the Bretton Woods Agreement in Decemberthe French franc was devalued in order to set a fixed exchange rate with the US dollar. New currencies were created in the French colonies to spare them the strong devaluation, thereby facilitating imports from France. In a show of her generosity and selflessness, metropolitan Francewishing not to impose on her far-away daughters the consequences of her own poverty, is setting different exchange rates for their currency.
The CFA franc was created with a fixed exchange rate versus the French franc. This exchange rate was changed only twice: in and in The value of the CFA franc has been widely criticized as being too high, which many economists believe favours the urban elite of the African countries, who can buy imported manufactured goods cheaply at the expense of farmers who cannot easily export agricultural products. Over time, the number of countries and territories using the CFA franc has changed as some countries began introducing their own separate currencies.
A couple of nations in West Africa have also chosen to adopt the CFA franc since its introduction, despite the fact that they were never French colonies. They are distinguished in French by the meaning of the abbreviation CFA. These eight countries have a combined population of These six countries have a combined population of InCentral African CFA banknotes were issued with an obverse unique to each participating country, and common reverse, in a fashion similar to euro coins.
Critics argue that in exchange for the guarantees provided by the French treasury, African countries channel more money to France than they receive in aid. They also argue that they have no say in deciding key monetary policies.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Africa portal Money portal Numismatics portal. Retrieved 22 December Retrieved 1 October Since most of the countries that use the currency are poor, mostly agricultural economies, this has put a stranglehold on their trade and made them overly dependent upon continuing, privileged access to French and, though them, European markets.
That this effectively recreates a quasi-colonial trading relationship between France and its former African colonies that benefits France mightily has not been lost on observers.
