Description
The Swiss 20 Francs Helvetica coin, minted from 1883 to 1896, is a precious historical artifact that marks Switzerland's rich numismatic tradition. It bears the classical image of Helvetia, the allegorical female figure representing Switzerland, depicted with her hair woven into a braid and wearing a toga, a design by Fritz Landry that emphasizes Swiss unity and pride. The coin's obverse showcases the Swiss coat of arms encircled by an oak branch, signifying strength and sovereignty. Struck with a gold purity of 90% (21.6 karats), each coin holds an actual gold weight of 0.1867 troy ounces (approximately 5.81 grams). The Helvetica series coins are not just valuable for their bullion content but also cherished for their embodiment of Switzerland's enduring dedication to democracy and peace in a period that preceded the turmoil of the 20th century.
