During the French Revolution a completely new form of currency was introduced, backed by land confiscated from the aristocracy rather than the usual gold or silver. We offer examples of the 50 sols issued in 1793 in both GF-VF and Crisp Uncirculated (PA70) They are simple affairs, printed in black on white on one side only Allegorical figures represent the delivery of the Rights of Man and the Scales of Justice.
