Cameroon 1-FRANC (KM5) Rooster

This splendid Gallic Rooster appeared one year only (1943) on this Cameroon 1-franc coin. Later that year, the design was changed slightly with "Libre" being added to the legend (KM7). The reverse features the Cross of Lorraine, originally the symbol of Joan of Arc, and adopted by the Free French Forces during WWII.
