Currency Information on Comorian Franc - KMF— Comorian franc – CF
The Comorian franc subdivides into 100 centime, but no centime denominational coins have ever been issued in Comoros, where the Comorian franc is the official currency.
Comorian language has been used on Comorian francs since 1975, before which, only French was used, as Comoros was a French protectorate and the French government had majority ownership over the Banque de Madagascar et des Comoros (Bank of Madagascar and Comoros).

Frequently used Comorian franc banknotes are issued in denominations of 500, 1,000, 2,000, 5,000 and 10,000 francs, whilst coins are available in denominations of 25, 50, 100 and 250 francs. Coins in the denominations 1, 2, 5 and 10 francs are also available, but due to their low value, they are rarely used.
When I was looking to retire to France a year ago I was in need of transferring money in order to pay the deposit on my retirement flat. Compare Money Transfer helped me find the best rates and the best deals – a great service if like me you are not familiar with the financial goings on of the currency markets.
