Information about Symbol: Libertas by Karl Schwenzer

Libertas by Karl Schwenzer
Switzerland / Five Centimes (Rappen) 2005

Libertas (Latin for Liberty) is the Roman goddess and embodiment of liberty.

This rendering by Karl Schwenzer was created in 1879 for the redesign of the 5, 10 and 20 centimes (Rappen) Swiss coins which had a Coat of Arms of Switzerland on their obverse before.

It depicts a female head looking right, with a ribbon in her hair, wearing a diadem with the text LIBERTAS on it.

Libertas on a modern coin

Switzerland / Five Centimes (Rappen) 2005

As seen on this modern AlBr (Aluminium-Bronze) coin, the symbol is still in use today, more than a century after it was created.
