Roger Federer - Smallest gold coin in the world
Press release
Three new commemorative coins issued:
Roger Federer, “Smallest gold coin in the
world” and “Hare”
Following the huge success of the pre-sale at the beginning of December 2019, a further
37,000 Roger Federer coins will be issued in various minting qualities on 23 January
2020. Swissmint has broken new technological ground with the production of the
smallest gold coin in the world. The machine-minted gold coin with different reverse
and obverse sides weighs only 0.063g and has a diameter of 2.96mm. In addition,
Swissmint is issuing the bimetallic Hare coin as the second motif in the Swiss forest
animals series.
For the first time in its history, Swissmint is dedicating a commemorative coin to a living person.
Roger Federer is probably Switzerland's most successful individual sportsman, the world's
greatest tennis player and the perfect ambassador for Switzerland. Also for the first time,
Swissmint held a pre-sale for a commemorative coin, on 2 December 2019. Following the
successful pre-sale of 33,000 units, a further 37,000 Roger Federer silver coins are being
issued for sale today: 22,000 in uncirculated quality, 10,000 in proof quality and 5,000 as a
folder with additional pictures and information.

as high as it was for the pre-sale, then long waiting times in the webshop can be expected,
