The Twenty Francs coin is a denomination of the Swiss Franc. 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.
In regular circulation, the denomination is served by a banknote. These coins are non-circulating legal tender made for collectors. They are issued in topical series, celebrating various aspects of Swiss heritage or nature.
The edge is inscribed with the motto DOMINUS PROVIDEBIT (The Lord will provide - a quote from the Bible, Genesis 22, 8), and thirteen stars representing the original thirteen cantons of the Swiss Federation.
This coin celebrates Swiss Yodelling.
Swissmint says about it:
Yodelling originated as a call from mountain to mountain, a way of communicating from one alpine farmstead to another. A love for nature and for one’s homeland are still central to this unique and instantly recognisable Alpine music. The original “natural” yodel was a form of communication in mountainous and inaccessible regions and was also used during cattle drives. A yodel or “jutz” is a melody sung using non-lexical vocables, i.e. sounds that are not words, with frequent repeated changes in pitch between the chest register and the head register (falsetto). Well-known natural yodels that are often improvised spontaneously include the "Muotataler Jüüzli", which is sung with two or three voices, and the polyphonic "Zäuerli" and "Ruggusserli" from Appenzell. In Switzerland and other Alpine countries, yodelling developed into song in the 19th century, usually as the choruses of folk songs.
