I am a fan of French coins and found a small set of these 10 Francs coins for a few bucks and picked them up. They are nice sized (26mm) aluminum-bronze coins with interesting commemorative designs.

Probably not terribly valuable, but they will make a nice addition to my 20th Century France set.

Hum, I think I only have one of those in my old collection, from when I was a kid :)
They are ina very nice condition IMHO, those are indeed commemorative with much less mintage.
Seems you got them for a nice price :)

Very nice! I particularly like the designs on both sides of the coin at top, middle. Quite appealing.

Yes, each is a commemorative. Most in the 3 to 30 million mintage range, and YES, nice coins! However only the 100th anniversary coin (birth of Roland Garros) is Al/Br. The others are a nickel bronze.
