First of all to explain the extremely long delay in replying. My site was on hold for a few years and I only "repossessed" it a few days ago. Hereinafter the reponse time will be significantly shorter.

Any coins not in the standard range 1 cent to 2 Euro are only legal tender in the coutry of issue, so it would only be legal tender in France. These coins are intended for collectors and making them "theoretically " legal tender is a way of avoiding paying tax on them. I can understand that shops and bars were not interested but I would have thought that a French bank would have changed it. Orwas it a non French bank were you tried to changeit?
