The French 20 Franc was minted from 1899 to 1914. A legal tender coin, the 20 Franc is a great choice for bullion investors looking for historic gold coins at low premiums. The 20 Franc is also a great “survival coin” – that is, a fractional gold coin. Unlike national government fractionals, the 20 Franc is available for a low-premium.
This particular coin contains nearly a fifth of an ounce of pure gold (.1867) and is available in almost Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
Many of these coins feature an image of Liberty on the obverse and the friendly Gallic Rooster on the reverse.
