The Swiss Vreneli Gold Coin

The Swiss Vreneli gold coin is one of the most beloved and recognized gold coins in the world. First minted in 1897, the Vreneli has a rich history and is celebrated for its beautiful design and high gold content.

History of the Swiss Vreneli

The Swiss Vreneli gold coin, also known as the Helvetia Head, was introduced as a replacement for the Swiss Helvetia gold coins minted from 1883 to 1896. The Vreneli was minted from 1897 to 1949 and then briefly in 1935 and 1947. It has since become a symbol of Swiss reliability and quality in the gold market.

Design of the Swiss Vreneli

  • Obverse: The obverse side of the Swiss Vreneli gold coin features a bust of a young woman, Vreneli, who represents the personification of Switzerland. She is depicted with braided hair, adorned with a garland of flowers, and set against a backdrop of the Swiss Alps. The word "Helvetia" is inscribed above her head.
  • Reverse: The reverse side of the coin displays the Swiss coat of arms, a simple cross on a shield, surrounded by oak leaves. Below the shield is the coin's denomination and the minting year.
