The Swiss Gold Coins: Sizes and Designs

The first design of these remarkable pieces of gold from Switzerland were the Helvetia Libertas gold coins, produced in one single denomination of 20 Francs and made from 0.1867 oz. of .900 pure gold. These coins were introduced in 1883 with a production run which ended in 1896. The coins were preceded by the most well-known Swiss Gold Coin design - the Helvetia or Vreneli coin. Depicting the image of the Switzerland’s female personification, the coin carries its name from the Helvetia region in the western part of Switzerland, which used to be the Helvetic Republic during 1798 and 1803. The ‘Vreneli” of “Swiss Miss” coins were manufactured during 1897 and 1936, then in 1947 and 1949, by the Swiss National Mint in Bern. The coins were produced in 10, 20 and 100 Francs face values, but the most popular ones are indeed the 20 Francs. The Vreneli 20 Franc Gold Coin Value is established based on its 0.1867 oz. of .900 pure gold content, as well as the premium based on the historical significance of the coin. The 100 Gold Swiss Francs were issued only in 1925 with a limited mintage of 5,000 items, while the 10 Gold Swiss Francs were struck in 1911, 1916 and 1922, but both coins featured a different design of the reverse side – the radiant Swiss Cross above a branch.

The Swiss Franc Gold Coins

The most popular design of the Gold Swiss Franc is the Swiss 20 Franc Gold Coin, which comes in two types: the Vreneli and the Helvetia Libertas, issued from 1883 to 1896. The Vreneli coin, also referred as the Helvetia or the Swiss 20 Francs, depicts the image of “Vreneli”, the charming “Swiss Miss” of folklore, framed against the majestic Swiss Alps, delicately braided hair, facing left and wearing flowers. This incredibly artistic design belongs to the engraver Fritz Ulysse Landry, and as such his signature is also engraved on the front side of the coin. On the reverse side of the Helvetia coin is engraved the image of the traditional Swiss arms, representing the Swiss cross over oak leaves that are tied with ribbons, along with the coin’s face value and the mintage date. The Helvetia Libertas gold coin carries on the obverse side the image of a laureate Head of Liberty wearing a coronet with the word “Libertas”, along with the inscription “Confederatio Helvetica”. On the reverse side of the coins is showcased a five-pointed star above the Swiss red cross on a simple shield within a wreath, along with the mintage date and letter “B” from Bern mintmark.
