Swiss 20 Franc Helvetia Gold 1949 'B', BU Brilliant Uncirculated.

 

The Swiss 20 Franc Helvetia is one of the classic smaller gold bullion coins with a rich history dating back more than 100 years. And during that time it has stood for Swiss independence, sovereignty, fiscal strength and real gold-backed currency.

This Swiss 20 Franc Helvetia gold coin is legal tender minted by the Swiss National Mint in Bern, Switzerland. This popular bullion coin is 90% gold meaning it contains a small amount of copper added for strength and durability.

The Swiss 20 Franc Helvetia weighs 6.45 grams and contains 0.1867 oz of gold. The Swiss 20 Franc Helvetia was struck in large quantities between 1897 and 1949 and was a bank reserve throughout Europe, trades for a small premium over its melt value and fluctuates directly with the price of gold.

The design was so popular re-strikes were produced beginning in 1935 and moving into the modern gold era. A re-strike is an authorized production by the Swiss National Mint which carries an earlier date.

The front of the Swiss 20 Franc Helvetia features the “Swiss Miss” of Switzerland folklore set against the Swiss Alps and the word Helvetia (the female national personification of Switzerland). The reverse features the Swiss Coat of Arms, its legal tender value (20 FR) and the date.
