History

The Latverian franc is the official currency and legal tender of the enforced monarchy of Latveria.[1]

Despite being a European nation, Latveria did not convert to the euro because Doctor Doom refused to do so.[1] Additionally, Latveria is not a member of the European Union.

One Latverian franc is divided into 100 centimes as is typical in most countries. The exact exchange rate is undisclosed, Kristoff Vernard reports the Latvian franc is very strong against the U.S. dollar.[1]

Trivia

  • The name franc is the name of several currency units, most notably that of France before it adopted the euro. The name is said to derive from the Latin inscription francorum rex ("King of the Franks") on early French coins, or from the French franc, meaning "free" (and "frank").[2]
  • Besides of Latveria, the countries that currently use francs include Switzerland, Liechtenstein, and most of the Francophone countries of Africa. Before the adoption of the euro, francs were also used in France, Belgium and Luxembourg, while Andorra and Monaco accepted the French franc as legal tender. The franc was also used within the French Empire's colonies, including Algeria and Cambodia.[3]
