Switzerland 250 Franc, 1291 - 1991 700 Years of Confederation Gold Medallion
250 FR Swiss coin celebrating the 700th anniversary of Switzerland's Confederation (1291-1991).
Switzerland in its modern form dates back to about 1848 and the adoption of the Federal Constitution. However, the earliest manifestation of Switzerland began in 1291, when the Cantons of Uri, Schwyze and Unterwalden joined together to form a confederation to provide mutual support in order to guard their independence from powerful neighbouring powers, other Cantons later joined for the same reasons, and the confederalist principles upon which Switzerland as a nation was founded have largely survived down to the present day.
