The french franc as it was known in the early twenty-first hundred, before the introduction of the Euro, was introduced in 1795. The coins suffered from churning times in France in the 19th and twentieth centuries as the nation struggled with transitions from Republic to Empire and back again. The Latin Monetary Unions formation helped stabilize the currency, but the World Wars in the first half of the twentieth century again interrupted its output. With the formation of the Fifth Republic following World War II, France would issue silver francs one concluding time. In 1959, proofs were struck for the modern 5 Franc ash grey coin. This was followed by production for circulation from 1960 to 1969.

Known in English as The Sower, this female allegorical digit is depicted in left-profile relief with a pocket of seeds in her leave hand as her correct hand sows those seeds about the ground while she walks. The nation of return is featured on this side in french language.
