The Swiss 20 Franc Vreneli gold coin is one of the world's
classic gold coins and quite popular among coin collectors and investors.
Great coin collections always include gold coins with beautiful designs, a
fascinating history, and high quality. Meanwhile, Switzerland, neutral
since its creation by the Congress of Vienna in 1815, has long been synonymous
with stability and fiscal strength due to its practice of backing its currency
with large quantities of gold. Therefore, we highly recommend these
strictly private, gold coins from Switzerland to coin collectors and investors.
Switzerland has a long, proud history of minting fine gold
coinage since 1492. These Swiss 20 Franc Gold Coins were only issued from 1897
to 1949 in solid gold.
The obverse of this Swiss 20 Franc, considered by some as the loveliest of all
Swiss coin designs, features a bust of a Vreneli, the charming Swiss Miss
of Swiss lore. She wears a garland of flowers and appears against the
background of the Swiss Alps. Above her head appears the word HELVETIA,
which is why this coin is also referred to as a Helvetia. The reverse
features a Swiss shield over a background of an oak branch tied with ribbons.
The denomination (20 FR) and the date also appear on this side.
