Historical Currencies of Réunion

Before 1975, Réunion had its own franc which was distinct from that of France. In 1945, the CFA franc was created and was adopted in Réunion and distinct coins were introduced in 1948. After 1975, the French franc circulated in Réunion. Until 1999, the franc was the currency of Réunion. The Réunion franc was further subdivided into 100 centimes. 

From 1873-1876, the Banque de la Réunion introduced notes for 5, 10, 25, 100 and 500 francs. The Colonial Treasury (Trésor Colonial) issued notes for 50 centimes, 1, 2 and 3 francs from 1884-1886. In 1944, The Banque de la Réunion ceased to issue notes. 

The Institut d'Émission des Départements d'Outre-Mer took over The Banque de la Réunion in 1962, and issued paper money with notes for 100, 500, 1000 and 500 francs with either "La Réunion" or "Département de la Réunion" printed over it. The 500, 1000 and 5000 notes issued in 1960, were printed over with the new francs denominations.
