50 francs - Roger Federer
Series: Switzerland - Gold franc coins
Roger Federer won his first ever Grand Slam title at Wimbledon in 2003. At the Wimbledon Championships alone, he has bagged a further seven titles, the last in 2017 at the age of 35 and five years after his previous Grand Slam victory. These eight successes make him a Wimbledon record-holder in a class of his own. The new 50-franc gold coin references the special relationship between Roger Federer and the Wimbledon Championships by showing him holding his Wimbledon trophy after winning the 2009 final. Owing to the high demand, Swissmint has also struck an additional 40,000 Roger Federer silver coins in uncirculated quality, and is issuing these for sale.
