The franc (French: Franc, Dutch: Frank, German: Franken) was the currency of the Kingdom of Belgium from 1832 until 2002 when the Euro was introduced into circulation. It was subdivided into 100 subunits, known as Centimes (French), Centiem (Dutch) or Centime (German).

These banknotes were issued by the Belgian Treasury. Treasury notes for 50 francs were introduced in 1948, followed by 20 francs in 1950 (this particular note was a second printing in 1956). The Belgian Treasury notes had the same legal tender value as coins.

According to National Bank of Belgium, Belgian 20-franc and 50-franc banknotes issued by the Treasury cannot be exchanged for Euro.
