Seems to me that it is an evocation of Jeanne d'Arc ( Joan of Arc) in Domremmy .We all learn in school here in France that she was a sheperdess in Domremmy before she became a soldier .In the background you can see a cathedral that would be Reims's cathedral where she brought the king to be crowned.If the currency was printed just after the war she may have been chosen in a sign of national reconciliation as she was and still is a very important character in our national history . I do not remember seing the bill even though I was born in 51 .... Thanks for your posts I just love your blog !

And didn't you mention that Iceland does the same thing? (Sheep, if not spinners?) Now that's the hallmark of a country that has its priorities straight.


I thought France only honored politicians and chefs.

Smart country!!


unfortunately france doesn't have such pretty currency anymore. although euros still aren't as boring as dollars.


Why can't we have beautiful currency like that?
