These 20 Francs Swiss Gold Coin Helvetia come in tubes or protective plastic for preservation. You will find the history of the 20 Francs Gold Coin in Switzerland is intricate and fascinating.

Following the Swiss confederation in 1848, the newly formed nation adopted the Swiss Franc, initially tied to the French Franc. The 20 Francs denomination, introduced by Napoleon for France in 1803, served as an international monetary piece before the advent of the modern Euro. Many nations across the continent embraced the 20 Francs denomination.

Switzerland’s 20 Francs Gold Coin encompasses the Helvetica design era, extending to the early 1880s, featuring a crowned Helvetia. However, the 20 Francs Gold Helvetia coins, lacking the crowned design, were issued between 1897 and 1935 and later in 1947 and 1949.

The obverse features the bust of Helvetia, a female personification of Switzerland. Her flowing hair, adorned with a braid, frames the peaks of the Swiss Alps in the background. This iconic design was crafted in 1895 by Fritz Ulysse Landry.

The reverse displays Switzerland’ coat of arms. Centered around the national shield with the traditional cross, the background is embellished with oak leaves, while the face value and year of issue are engraved on this side. Secure your Swiss history with these 20 Francs Gold Coins from Private Bullion today.

What Our Customers Are Saying

“Professional, helpful and no stress approach made my purchase very simple. Fast shipping, low prices and great follow up. The coins were better than expected. I would recommend MBE to anyone looking to purchase precious metals. You will not find a more honest and sincerely company out there.”
“I recently purchased silver bars from MBE and the exchange went wonderfully. The staff was polite and helpful, the product was exactly what I expected, and I had it in my hands in just a few days after ordering. I would definitely buy from MBE again.”
“I was very pleased with my dealings with Midwest Bullion Exchange. I did not feel rushed on the phone with the representative and felt free to ask any questions. My father who has dealt with a lot of other companies that deal in precious metals was also impressed with this business.”
