English Loan + Indemnities

I've just ran along an interesting comment in Karl Helleiner's 'Imperial Loan' which discusses the loans made by England to the Austrian Empire during the Revolutionary + Napoleonic Wars. According to Helleiner, Austria paid the first, 40 million Franc installment on the Treaty of Pressburg with 500,000 they got from Britain to tie up the subsidy Treaty signed at the beginning of the Third Coalition. So I was wondering whether 500,000 would be equivalent to 40 million Francs in 1806.
