For the first time, Swissmint has issued a 25 franc gold coin. The coin is dedicated to the Swiss watchmaking industry, which is highly respected around the world.
In 2022, Swissmint is commemorating the last minting of the 10-franc gold Vreneli in 1922 with a gold coin. In the Swissmint online shop the coin was sold out only hours after the official issue. What makes this issue so special?
The commemorative coin “Hydropower” starts the Swissmint’s three-part coin series “Energy of the Future”. It is the mint’s first colored coin with fluorescent elements. As usually, at the end of the year a circulation coin set will be issued with a Christmas medal.
On 29th April 2021 Swissmint launches a new commemorative gold coin “50 years of Swiss women’s right to vote” remembering the introduction of votes for women at federal level in 1971.
Swissmint issues a new 20 Francs silver coin on 29th April 2021. “Illusion – The Bridge of Life” is dedicated to one of the best-known works of Swiss trompe-l’oeil artist Sandro Del-Prete.
Not one but two coins by Swissmint made it into the Guinness Book of Records. Swissmint can be proud to mint the coin with the oldest design still in circulation. The mint also issued the world’s smallest commemorative coin with its 1/4 franc commemorative coin. Congratulations on the record!
Every mint has the wish to land a coup and thus gain international attention. But what happens if they actually succeed? Using the example of the commemorative coin dedicated to Roger Federer issued at the beginning of 2020, Swissmint answers this question.
