Product Description

The Swiss franc continues to serve as Switzerland’s official currency and legal tender, reflecting a rich history of currency evolution in the country. Among the cherished gold coins denominated in Swiss francs is the Helvetia design, also known as the Vreneli range. Presently, 20 Francs Gold Coins featuring the iconic Swiss Helvetia design are available for purchase online from BullionSelect. Each of these 20 Francs Gold Coins is offered in Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition and is securely sealed in protective plastic for delivery.

The journey of the 20 Francs Gold Coin in Switzerland is intertwined with a complex history. Following the Swiss confederation in 1848, the newly formed nation adopted the Swiss Franc as its currency, initially tied to the French Franc. The 20 Francs denomination traces its roots back to Europe’s adoption by Napoleon for France in 1803, serving as a significant monetary unit before the introduction of the modern Euro.

The history of Switzerland’s 20 Francs Gold Coin features a distinctive period of Helvetica design, prevalent until the early 1880s, portraying a crowned Helvetia. Subsequently, the 20 Francs Gold Helvetia coins were minted without the crowned design, produced between 1897 and 1935, as well as in 1947 and 1949.

The obverse of the 20 Francs Gold Coin showcases the bust of Helvetia, a female embodiment of Switzerland. Her portrayal includes flowing hair with a braided adornment and the majestic Swiss Alps in the background. This exquisite design, credited to Fritz Ulysse Landry in 1895, adds to the coin’s allure.

On the reverse side of the 20 Francs Gold Coins within the Swiss Helvetia collection, the national coat of arms takes center stage. The shield prominently displays the traditional Swiss cross, surrounded by oak leaves, while the face value and year of issue are meticulously engraved, completing the coin’s elegant design.
