France 20 Francs 1929 to 1939
These nice-looking French coins were minted in 0.680 fine silver, containing 0.437 troy ounces of the precious metal. At today's silver prices (use a web site such as kitco.com to find the current price), just the silver content alone gives them decent value.
If your coin is in average circulated condition, like the one in our picture, it might fetch $20 to $30 US dollars in an eBay auction. Problems, scratches, cleanings, stains and the like will lower value. An uncirculated specimen catalogs over $85.
The numbers above are true for all dates except one. If you have a 1936 France 20 francs, watch out! It is the granddaddy of the series, with a catalog value of $1000 in average circulated condition.
DO NOT CLEAN YOUR COIN. CLEANING RUINS VALUE.
Please see our Important Terminology page to understand the meaning of 'catalog value.'
