The nation of Switzerland is noted for its gold industry and honest money. The Bern Mint first issued the gold 20 franc coin in 1897. Before long the coins were circulated throughout Europe, their popularity driven by the Swiss reputation. Today they are among the most familiar and widely recognized gold coins in the world.
Swiss 20 francs are a great way to buy a fractional gold coin. For people who want to hold some smaller coins in their portfolio, these are a very low cost option. The low premiums coupled with trust and reconizability, make them a terrific choice for investors who think smaller more affordable bullion coins will outperform or seek something that will be useful in barter.
