Old French bank notes

The images below show the older French money which is no longer used, as France has switched over to the Euro monetary system. Some of the bank notes can still be exchanged for Euro in a Banque de France. However they are all being removed as legal tender of a time period. So if you have any in your wallet, make sure you change them to Euro soon or just keep them for a collection.
