Fair use rationale for Image:CongoDemRepP85a-1Franc-1997(1998)-donatedth b.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:CongoDemRepP85a-1Franc-1997(1998)-donatedth b.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

FC, not F[edit]

«Article 1 Le présent Décret-loi institue en République Démocratique du Congo, une nouvelle unité monétaire dénommée " FRANC CONGOLAIS". Son symbole est constitué par les lettres "FC" majuscules. Article 2 Le Franc Congolais est subdivisé en cent parties égales appelés centimes, et représentés par la lettre "c" minuscule.» source: --Eruedin (talk) 14:46, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

the simple "F" appears on the banknotes. -- (talk) 22:51, 26 November 2011 (UTC)

In the past[edit]

  • 100 Centimes = 1 Franc
  • 100 Sengi = 1 Li-kuta
  • 100 Ma-kuta = 1 Zaire Böri (talk) 11:14, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

No mention of value[edit]

The currency of this fair land was known in the past for being subject to freefall inflation; I am pleased to note that those days are [touch wood] gone. What is the cause of the stability of the currency at present? Is it pegged to the US dollar, or the Euro? Certainly the US dollar features a lot in the finances of the Congo at the moment. Zimbabwe got rid of their own currency a few years ago - and only has the US dollar. The Congo uses the US dollar for all transactions except the mundane everyday ones - like shopping for groceries. Bank account of individuals are kept as US dollars. So ... this article is fine - if you're a banknote collector, but what about the value of the currency? Could someone shed some light?
