  • Product description
    Vreneli is the informal name for a range of legal tender gold coins produced in Switzerland. The formal name is: Tête d'Helvetia (French), Helvetiakopf (German) or Helvetia Head (English). The coins were issued between 1897 and 1936, in 1947 and in 1949. All coins issued after 1936 are restrikes (legal tender ceased September 29, 1936. These coins had face values of 10, 20 and 100 Swiss francs and were minted in a millesimal fineness of 900.  The coins were minted at the Swiss Mint at Bern.

    Front (Motif- or Mainside, Obverse (numismatics))
    The coins are sometimes colloquially called “Swiss Miss,” from the obvious obverse motif. Helvetia actually connotes two ideas: it is a variation of the official Latin name of Switzerland, Confoederatio Helvetica or Swiss Confederation, and, by extension, it refers to the allegorical figure of the Swiss version of Lady Liberty. The Helvetia figure is often depicted with a tiara with the word "Libertas" the Latin root for Liberty, as depicted on an earlier version of the denomination and known as the "Libery head". The coin is designed by Fritz Landry of Neuchâtel, Switzerland, whose signature, "F. Landry" appears on the coin under the portrait. The edge of the coin is imprinted with stars in relief.

    Back (Valueside, Reverse (numismatics))

    The 20 franc coin's reverse shows the Swiss shield, featuring the Swiss Cross, and a wreath of oak along with the denomination.
