One of the most popular coin denominations in the history of modern Europe was the 20 Francs piece. First introduced by Napoleon in France in 1803, this coin held a status some refer to as the “Euro before the Euro.” Adopted by countless nations across the continent, one of the more beautiful designs was the 20 Francs Swiss Helvetia design issued by the Bern Mint. Today, 20 Francs Gold Coins with the Helvetia design are available to you online at Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Ships to you in protective plastic!
  • Consists of .1867 Troy oz of actual gold content in BU condition.
  • The face value of 20 Francs (Swiss) is fully backed by Switzerland’s government.
  • Obverse face of the coin bears the left-profile portrait of Helvetia.
  • Reverse features the Swiss coat of arms.

The 20 Francs Gold Coins of the Helvetia design range includes two different issues in the late 1800s. The so-called Helvetica range of coins was available from 1883 to 1896 and featured different designs than the Helvetia coins. The Helvetica had a crowned portrait of Helvetia on the obverse with no background imagery. The reverse of the Swiss shield also had a simpler background design that included a wreath encircling the coat of arms.

When the Bern Mint introduced the Helvetia design, the popular 20 Francs Gold Coin received a more ornate design element on both sides. These coins of the Helvetia range were issued from 1897 to 1935, with a restrike released in 1947 and 1949.

All of the 20 Francs Gold Coins in this issue have the latter Swiss Helvetia design for the obverse and reverse faces. Each one is individually sealed in plastic and remains in BU condition.

The obverse of the 20 Francs Gold Coin includes the left-profile bust of Helvetia. She is traditionally depicted standing with a flowing gown, braided hair, and a wreath that symbolizes confederation in Switzerland. This bust was created in 1895 by Fritz Ulysse Landry and depicts her head only with flowing hair that includes a braid and a wreath around her neck and chest. In the background field, you’ll notice the mountains of the Swiss Alps.

On the reverse of these 20 Francs Gold Coins is the ornate Swiss shield design. The nation’s coat of arms, the Swiss shield itself is a simple design that includes only the cross of Switzerland. In the background, there is a cluster of oak leaves with the engraving of “20 FR” for the face value and a year of issue also inscribed.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
