Would like to get an opinion on the grade and authenticity of this coin. Weight 19.82g, diameter is 34.83mm. Non magnetic. As it seems to be rare enough with 'only' 47k minted I would like to know if its genuine. Grade and value too. Thank You

I've never seen a 20F coin of this date, but here's my 1938 one for comparison.

Nothing about your coin suggests to me that it might be a fake. A French coin catalogue published in 2017 that I've got lists the value as 400 euros in Fine and 700 in VF.

I think your 20 francs is genuine. It has correct weight, diameter and edge and the '6' in 1936 has the right look (smaller than the other digits and a bit uneven - it is believed that a single die was used for the low mintage). Grade VF/TB I think, 400 according to Le Franc 2019.

Another question to forum members, would it be worthwhile to send it for grading? Thank You

I think the best price you'd get would be from a French collector, and slabbed coins aren't that popular in France. However, others may disagree!
