This is a great design by Patey, and this depiction of a South American Indian on a possession of France, makes this coin in demand in higher conditions. Special strikes and those done in silver also exist. This coin was struck again in 1921 and also in a 50 Centimes denomination. I believe this coin is also known to be the one with the most sides, while looking round, it actually has 20 sides. The reverse image is of a major source of revenue for this island near South America, sugar cane. Mintage for both years 700k each.
