Let me first apologize for my English and welcome you to this website dedicated to French colonial and World numismatic. This is an amator website with a very simple ambition. You will discover very few exceptionnal coins here, but the presentation of my collection.

I put the emphasis on French colonial coinage and, in particularly, former French Indo-China coins, Viet-Nam, Cambodia and Laos with more than 500 coins, observe and reverse pictured. There is also a comprensive collection of pattern coins from the former French colonies with more than 100 coins presented. Additionally, you will find some pages with short notes on colonial numismatic, fake coins, dies varieties or unlisted French colonial coins and links.
Most of this website is in French, but I try to translate the main pages and to write an abstract in English for each paper.
Have a nice tour on Monnaies Coloniales and do not hesitate to contact us !
