1949 Swiss 20 Francs

Switzerland were on of the few countries to issue any gold coins in 1949. We usually have some in stock.
Every day people ask us for coins which do not exist, including 1949 sovereigns and half sovereigns.
Half sovereigns were not issued in every year, and this is one date for which none were issued.

Most countries were still struggling to recover from the economic effects of World War II, and were desperately trying to retain or rebuild their gold reserves.

For coin collectors, this does not matter, as collectors very sensibly restrict themselves to collecting dates which exist. If, however, you are looking for an unusual gift to mark a 50th birthday, or a golden wedding, the lack of a suitable gold coin may cause a problem. As leading UK coin dealers, we get asked almost daily for a 1949 sovereign. As we hate to disappoint our customers, we have managed to unearth a small quantity of these attractive gold Swiss 20 Franc coins in Uncirculated condition.

Diameter: 21mm.
