20 Franc Gold Swiss Helvetia Vreneli AGW .1867 AU/BU (1897-1949, Random Year)


The Swiss gold 20 Franc Vreneli was produced from 1897 - 1949 with a total mintage of 61 million. The total weight of the Vreneli is 0.2074 of a troy ounce and it is a 0.900 fine coin meaning it is alloyed with a small amount of copper which adds to its durability. The actual gold content of the French 20 Franc Vreneli is 0.1867 troy ounce. This coin is sometimes called the “Vreneli” and is derived from Switzerland’s Swiss Miss. The coin was engraved by Fritz Ulysse Landry (1842-1927).

The obverse of the Swiss Vreneli depicts the bust of a young woman (Vreneli), the charming Swiss Miss of proverb, with bridal hairstyle; collar decorated with edelweiss;  framed against the majestic Alps. At the top, the inscription "HELVETIA"; at bottom right engraver’s signature "F. LANDRY". The reverse features the traditional Swiss Coat of Arms placed on branches of oak and surrounded by the legend "20 FR", with the famous Swiss cross and wreath of the Republic. At the bottom, the date and mint mark B (Bern) appear. 

Vreneli is the diminutive of Verena, who is the personification of Switzerland. The name 'Helvetia' dates back to Roman times when it was the term for the original inhabitants of what is now Switzerland. The diameter of this coin is 21 mm and the thickness 1.4 mm. Year of the coin varies on our current inventory and is completely random. Like all of our other gold coins, this one is guaranteed to be 100% authentic. Item will be wrapped and packaged safe for delivery.

A lucky find thanks to BE!!!! (Review by Samuel Valencia)
I've been looking all over for a coin like this to add to my collection and Bullion Exchanges made it an easy buy! This 20 Franc Gold Swiss Vreneli coin was cheapest on their website and I loved how simple their online ordering was. My item came in three days and in great condition.

Can't wait to purchase from BE again!
