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


The Swiss 20 Francs Vreneli gold coins were produced from 1897-1936 with restrikes in 1947 and 1949. 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 Vreneli weighs .2074 troy ounce and is composed of .900 fine gold, meaning it is alloyed with a small amount of copper which adds to its durability. 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 with a bridal hairstyle and a collar decorated with Edelweiss. Behind her appear the majestic Swiss Alps. The top of the coin features the inscription "HELVETIA" and at bottom right, the engraver’s signature "F. LANDRY." The reverse features the Swiss Coat of Arms placed on branches of oak and surrounded by "20 FR", with the famous Swiss cross and wreath of the Republic. At the bottom, the date and mint mark B (Bern) appear. The year of the coin varies on our current inventory and is completely random.

Coin Features:

  • Composed of .900 fine gold
  • Actual Gold Weight of .1867
  • Coins selected at random based on availability
  • Obverse: Features the bust of Vreneli in front of Swiss Alps along with the inscriptions “Helvetia” and “F. Landry”
  • Reverse: Displays the Swiss Coat of Arms and “20 FR”

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!
