Switzerland, Silver 5 Francs, Extremely Fine

Switzerland continued to strike its 5 franc coin in silver (.835) until 1969, by which time the cost had become unsustainable. Hoarding of silver coinage had also become a problem and was causing a shortage of coins in circulation. However, we can now offer one of these coins minted between 1931 and 1969, and in Extremely Fine condition. The obverse shows the image of a herdsman, who is often mistakenly assumed to be William Tell.
