The obverse side of the 5 Francs France Silver Coins come with several different design elements possible. The coins issued in the original release in the 19th century have varying images of French leaders. First issued during the Consulship, the coins would later feature Napoleon Bonaparte during the first French Empire, King Louis Philippe I, and Napoleon III during the Second Republic and Third Empire.


On the reverse face of 5 Francs France Silver Coins are simpler design elements. For example, the original coins of the 19th century have the coins denomination and a date mark in the center with a laurel wreath framing the design field. The New Francs of the 20th century featured the denomination above of a three-spring configuration of oak, acorn, and olive branches, with the date mark below.


The original 5 Francs silver coins issued from 1801 to the 1880s had a weight of 25 Grams with 90% silver content, while the modern New Francs in the 1960s had a weight of 12 Grams with .835 fine silver content. The 5 Francs Silver Coins of the 19th century were one of the most produced versions of the franc denomination alongside the 20 and 40 Franc gold coins that later formed the base of the Latin Monetary Union on the European continent.
