Twenty-five Francs, Platinum, Coin Type from Switzerland - detailed information

Twenty-five Francs, Platinum, Coin Type from Switzerland (issued 2022 - )
Coin TypeTwenty-five Francs, Platinum

The Twenty-five Francs denomination of the Swiss Franc was used for the first time in 2022 to issue a non-circulating platinum coin. Given that Switzerland has four official languages, the Franc has three different names: Franken in German, franc in French and Romansh, and franco in Italian.

These coins are non-circulating legal tender made for collectors.

Note that there was an unrelated earlier gold 25 Francs pattern made between 1955 and 1959 which was never released.
