1973 Belgium Franc, Dutch Legend, Coin Alignment

First non-Euro coin from Europe in a long time. It is common but still nice to find in my change, there is more scarce medal alignment variety but of course those are hard to find.

The Roman goddess Ceres is on the front next to a cornucopia. Ceres was the goddess of agriculture and fertility, among other things. I say was because while the religion is no longer practiced and her current status is unknown. The reverse of the coin has a crown above an oak leaf. The denomination 1 FR is there with the country Belgium written in Dutch as BELGIE. There is a French language version as well.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Franc - Coin Alignment / Belgium
Year: 1973
Mintage: 42,500,000
Metal: Copper-Nickel
Value: $0.10 in F
