20 francs - 150 years of the Swiss Firefighters Association
The Swiss Firefighters Association: 150 years of rescuing, helping and protecting. Day and night, around 85,000 firefighters in Switzerland and Liechtenstein are ready to help fellow citizens in case of danger. More than 98% of them perform their duties on a voluntary basis in addition to their usual jobs. With this 20-franc silver coin, Swissmint is commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Swiss Firefighters Association. At the same time, the coin is intended as a tribute to the achievements of the men and women of the fire departments in Switzerland and Liechtenstein. Their commitment to the public's well-being cannot be taken for granted.
