U.S. mint production for a WWII liberated country- Belgium

3 posts in this topic

Was at a loss to where to post this thread as this is a foreign coin; however, this coin was produced with a planchet that was for a U.S. denominated coin, and, it was produced by a U.S. mint.


The below 2 Franc coin was produced after the liberation of Belgium. During the first few weeks of September of 1944, Brussels was liberated by allied forces and a currency soon followed. The coin is struck on a 1943 steel cent planchet, and minted in the U.S. It's a Belgium 2 Franc coin that is dated 1944.

A silver one would probably be struck on a dime planchet.


My file is on another computer, but I believe the Belgium pieces were struck in Denver.
