Favorite "fractional" Au coin, by FAR!

By  Wicked Val

from Olympia, WA


This is by far my favorite "fractional" Gold coin. Like most P.M. holders, I started by buying the common American & Canadian 1/4 & 1/10 TOZ coins for smaller denominations. As I gained more experience, I've settled on the "Swiss 20 Franc" piece as my absolute favorite smaller piece, because of many reasons- all listed above!

Great Experience

  • Couldn't Pick My Own Date
  • Common (higher mintage)

I ordered this Swiss 20 Franc gold coin on Sunday night, got it by Wednesday at noon. Packaging as always was secure and doesn't attract attention, even though it spent about one minute in my mail box. I have been interested in older Euro gold for some time, and the Swiss in particular, as it is one of the few coins minted with a date of my dad's birth. However this is one of those offerings where you have to take a random date for a better price. Not a huge deal. The coin I got was a 1935, so ostensibly 80 years old. I'm a little unclear about the restrikes for this product. Advertised as an AU, it was at least that, could possibly rate as an MS 60 or 61, I'm not trained real well on condition. The reverse was definitely BU while the obverse had some face scratches. But the eye appeal of the coin exceeded the advertised description. To me this is a cool issue and I will be back to buy more in the future. Oh, and coin was shipped in a stiff clear flip.

Very Nice

I own various European coins similar to this size/denomination and the Swiss Franc I received is, relatively speaking, far and away the finest coin in my collection.

Just as described

Got one of these guys in excellent condition. Larger than I thought it would be. Very nice addition to my stack.

a pretty coin

  • Recognized Brand
  • Attractive Design


  • High Premium Over Spot

I sampled a group of available gold coins in my last purchase for addition to my portfolio. This was one of the prettiest designs that I got and became eligible for further purchases. The Swiss sourcing has been internationally recognized for financial purposes for decades. But for the high premium over spot, I would probably have already bought some more of them. May eventually do so anyway.

Excellent Condition

Received a 1915 in excellent condition. Very attractive and the .1867 weight is a great alternative to a 1/10 ounce coin. Will be adding more to my holdings.

Just beautfiul!

I bought this coin to keep my 20 Franc Angel company in my safe. Dated 1947, it looks as new as the day it was minted.


from KS


Beautiful coins, looks like its somewhere between a quarter and nickel in size. Their in great condition, mine was dated 1927 but looks like it could have been minted last year! I will definitely be buying more Swiss Francs in the future.

I got 4X50 coin tubes of these beauties from APMEX June 2011. They are old but in fantastic condition. Every coin!! They may also be exempt from a reinstatement of the 1933 pres. confiscation order as they have numismatic value as old rare coins, and are not just "bullion' gold. Dime sized and easily transported in a "money Belt" should we soon be in a S.H.T.F. scenario. Great for barter where nobody wants paper Fiat money. Only buy from APMEX, as I always do. They are the BEST to buy gold from!! AAA+++ Thanks guys!

The .1867 net gold content and the beautiful design makes these my favorite fractional foriegn goin coin from Europe! They are great for inflation protection (coming soon in a year to so), and accepted for barter or where people won't trust "Printed paper FIAT" money. APMEX has a %100 perfect record with my many orders last year. I mave purchased over $120,000.00 in bullion from them without ANY problems. They are shipped securely, fast, and APMEX even offers to buy them back at their "no hassel" posted prices. This takes the guesswork out of knowing what to expect. APMEX is THE only place where I feel safe & served well, with guaranteed BEST prices. Only deal with APMEX, as I do. Trust them %100.00, as I always do. AAA+++ company I trust.
