HELVETIA (1672 - )
LegendHELVETIA
Full textHELVETIA

Helvetia is the female national personification of Switzerland, officially Confœderatio Helvetica, the Swiss Confederation.

The allegory is typically pictured in a flowing gown, with a spear and a shield emblazoned with the Swiss flag, and commonly with braided hair, commonly with a wreath as a symbol of confederation. The name is a derivation of the ethnonym Helvetii, the name of the Gaulish tribe inhabiting the Swiss Plateau prior to the Roman conquest.

On some small coins, Helvetia is only represented by the legend while no figure is displayed.
