20 francs - Mani Matter
On 24 November 2022, Swissmint will launch the new special coin "Mani Matter". It is the first silver coin from Swissmint which will have a fineness of 999.9 and will go on sale under the new "Swiss special coins" brand. Hans Peter "Mani" Matter (*4 August 1936 in Herzogenbuchsee; †24 November 1972 in Kilchberg ZH) was a Swiss singer-songwriter and lawyer. Inspired by Georges Brassens, he began writing, composing and interpreting Bernese dialect chansons at the age of 13. Even now, fifty years after his accidental death, the popularity of Mani Matter and his songs remains undimmed. The new 20-franc silver coin designed by Swissmint's engraver Remo Mascherini, is available for purchase in the qualities 'uncirculated' and 'proof' in a presentation case at our online-shop or from selected coin dealers and banks.
