The History of the Swiss Miss

Historically, the Swiss Miss had a face value of 20 Swiss Francs in Switzerland. The coins have had a legal tender value for a long time and their legal tender value is still recognised.

Tthe Swiss Vreneli Gold Coin was authorised by law in 1896, and the name of the coin was derived from “Verena”, a figure personifying Switzerland as a confederation.

The value of the coin is nominal compared to the coin's gold content value.

These pioneering coins were made at the Swiss Mint in Bern, however the die engraving was completed by the Paris Mint.

The forces of demand and supply around the world dictate the market value of the beautiful coin. The supply of Swiss Vreneli coins is limited due to the fact that production of these gold coins was stopped in 1949.
