Description
The Switzerland 20 Francs Helvetia gold coin, struck between 1897 and 1949, is a testament to Swiss craftsmanship and national identity. Known as 'Vreneli,' the coin features the profile of Helvetia, the female national personification of Switzerland, with plaited hair, a garland, and the Swiss Alps in the backdrop, designed by Fritz Ulysse Landry. Its obverse design is complemented by the Swiss shield and the iconic cross amidst a bouquet of alpine flowers, symbolizing Swiss heritage and independence. These coins are composed of 90% gold and contain 0.1867 troy ounces (5.805 grams) of actual gold weight. The 20 Francs Helvetia is not only valued for its gold content but also as a piece of numismatic history, reflecting Switzerland's stability and neutrality during a time of significant upheavals in Europe.
