Origin: French Polynesia
Unit: 1 franc
Ok, the title is actually a misnomer as this is a franc rather than a centime (100 centimes = 1 franc), but I was going for the alliteration. For those that don't know French Polynesia is a collection of islands that form a Constituent Country (a 'country' that is part of a larger entity such as Greenland and Denmark). Over 150 islands that make it up are located in the South Pacific Ocean (East of Australia). The most well known and largest of the islands is Tahiti, which is also the most populated of the islands. The capital of French Polynesia is Papeete, and the largest city has an interesting name: Faaa.
