20 Francs Swiss Confoederatio Gold Coin – 1886-1896 (AU>BU)

20 Francs Swiss Confoederatio Gold Coin – 1886-1896 (AU>BU)


This earlier first series of the Swiss 20 Francs Gold Coins began production in 1886. They lasted through 1896 before series one production abruptly ended. These first editions of the coins are easily recognizable by the ” “CONFEDERATIO” lettering on the front right of the coin.  Each contain .1867 ounces of gold and weigh 6.45 grams. This earlier series were struck in far smaller quantities than the Vreneli coins, which became a favorite bank reserve all around Europe. This is what makes the first series of Swiss Gold 20 Francs Coins more expensive than the Series Two Vreneli coins.

Coin Design

The “obverse” features a lovely Swiss girl often referred to as the original “Swiss Miss.” She stands for Liberty and her head is crowned with a laureate coronet that carries the phrase, “LIBERTAS,” and is flanked to each side by “CONFEDERATIO HELVETICA.”

Swiss Gold 20 Francs Coins have a reverse with a five pointed star over the Swiss red cross emblazoned on a simple design of shield inside of a wreath. On either side of this shield is the inscription 20 FR. The date of mintage appears below this shield. Beneath the wreath you find the “B” mint mark for Bern. This is the design for all type one Swiss 20 Francs Gold Coins minted from 1886 to 1896.
