The French franc was a commonly held international reserve currency of reference in the 19th and 20th centuries. John's son, Charles Vcontinued this type. It was copied exactly at Brabant and Cambrai and, with the arms on the horse cloth changed, at Flanders. John II, however, was not able to strike enough francs to pay his ransom and he voluntarily returned to English captivity.
Charles V pursued a policy of reform, including stable coinage. In the accompanying deflation both prices and wages fell, but wages fell faster and debtors had to settle up in better money than they had borrowed. The franc fared better. It became associated with money stable at one livre tournois.
Henry III exploited the association of the franc as sound money worth one livre tournois when he sought to stabilize French currency in By this time, inflows of gold and silver from Spanish America had caused inflation throughout the world economy and the kings of France, who weren't getting much of this wealth, only made things worse by manipulating the values assigned to their coins.
The States General which met at Blois in added to the public pressure to stop currency manipulation. Henry III agreed to do this and he revived the franc, now as a silver coin valued at one livre tournois. Nevertheless, the name "franc" continued in accounting as a synonym for the livre tournois.

As during the " Mississippi Bubble " in —, too many assignats were put in circulation, exceeding the value of the "national properties", and the coins, due also to military requisitioning and hoarding, rarefied to pay foreign suppliers. With national government debt remaining unpaid, and a shortage of silver and brass to mint coins, confidence in the new currency declined, leading to hyperinflation, more food riots, severe political instability and termination of the First French Republic and the political fall of the French Convention.The Swiss franc plural: francs ; in German: Frankplural: Franken has been the currency of Liechtenstein since The Swiss franc is legal tender since Liechtenstein is in a customs and monetary union with Switzerland.
