There are no other countries quite like the Swiss when talking about or mentioning gold. Gold and Switzerland are synonymous and needless to say have been one of the world's main trading centres for gold bullion. Historically, like much of Europe, the Swiss minted gold ducat coins across many of the canton states. After the fall of the Napoleonic Empire, the Swiss were officially recognised as an independent state in 1815. Listed below are the more common Swiss gold coins we deal with:
