The franc was the independent currency of Mali between 1962 and 1984. Although technically subdivided into 100 centimes, no subdivisions were issued.
Until 1962, Mali used the West African CFA franc. The Malian franc was introduced that year at par with the CFA franc but later declined in value relative to it. In 1984, Mali readopted the CFA franc, with 2 Malian francs = 1 CFA franc.
In 1962, aluminium coins were issued (dated 1961) in denominations of 5, 10 and 25 francs. A second issue of aluminium-bronze was issued between 1975-1977 in denominations of 10, 25, 50 and 100 francs coins.
Banknotes dated 1960 were issued by the Bank of the Republic of Mali in 1962 in denominations of 50, 100, 500, 1000 and 5000 francs.

In 1971, the Central Bank of Mali took over note production and issued a third series in 100, 500, 1000, 5000 and 10,000 francs notes.
