The history of Swiss Gold Helvetias

Swiss Gold Helvetias were minted at the Swiss National Mint in Bern from 1897 until 1936, with authorized restrikes following in 1947 and 1949. The obverse of these Swiss Gold coins depicts Helvetia, the female personification of Switzerland in the same way Lady Liberty is associated with the United States. This coin, sometimes referred to as a “Swiss Miss,” ceased being produced in 1936 due to the Great Depression. In modern times, these world coins have become more valuable for their Gold content than for their actual face value as legal tender.

Why invest in Swiss Gold Helvetias?

The highly popular Swiss Gold Helvetia makes investing easier due to the Gold coin’s lower premium over the spot price of Gold. The fractional Swiss Gold coin is an ideal choice for investors with limited budgets wanting to own affordable Gold coins. Many investors choose fractional Gold coins such as Swiss Gold Helvetias and Gold French Roosters to supplement their portfolio of larger Gold coins because smaller Gold coins are easier to use for bartering. These world coins are also appealing to investors because they are legal tender coins guaranteed for weight and purity by the Swiss government.

Collect Swiss Gold Helvetias featuring the artwork of Fritz Landry.

Swiss Gold Helvetias are prized among collectors for their beautiful design created by Swiss artist Fritz Landry. Landry’s skill for sculpting and engraving can be seen in the Swiss Gold coins, and it seems likely that growing up in a family of watch-case engravers contributed to his artistic sense. The design of these Gold coins is also influenced by one of his instructors, acclaimed medalist Antoine Bovy.

Picked these up to add some interesting fractional gold coins. Received an L1935B (restrike) and a 1947. The grades were easily high AU. Wanting to try something a little different, I got these mainly for bullion, but the coins actually look very good and I am very happy with the purchase.

Once payment processed, received my coin very quickly. Arrived in beautiful condition as usual. For those that cant afford to drop 1k on a full 1oz coin, these are a great way to go and a great way to hold a bit of history in your hands. Just think of what the person's life was like that held it soon after it was minted. As usual, Apmex does a fine job again.

my first purchase with Apmex in a while and was not disappointed. This is a beautiful coin at a reasonable price. My only complaint would be that it's clear this coin was cleaned improperly in the past, but it's almost expected with a circulated coin this old.

Low premium gold in great condition

By  Shara Vabdas

Coin I received was in excellent condition. There are some barely perceptible and very small scratches on Helvetica's cheek, but they are almost not noticeable and the coin clearly qualifies as AU condition. For the gold content, it's difficult to find a better premium over spot price.
