Timeless seated liberty design

The obverse of the coin features one of the most distinctive seated Liberty designs to grace a coin. She is depicted wearing a crown of rays very much like the Statue of Liberty, which makes perfect sense given the French origin of our statue and the prolific, talented and world famous engraver of the coin, Frenchman Jean-Auguste Barre. Liberty is shown holding a fasces, a symbol of unity and strength. Behind her is an anchor and to her side are bunches of wheat. The obverse legend reads "Republique Francais" with the year. The reverse has the inscription "Piastre De Commerce" located with a wreath and the rim reads "Indo-Chine Francais Titre 0.900 Poids 27 Gr."
