Roe deer

    Roe deer

  • Its charm, graceful appearance and elegant stotting ensures the shy deer (Capreolus capreolus) a top place in the popularity ratings of native wild animals. But when a deer jumps high and far, it is usually fleeing and has no time to lose. This is how most of us know deer: very shy animals which flee, bolting high and far, at the slightest smell of danger.

Blümlisalp steamboat

  • When the United Steam Navigation Company for Lakes Thun and Brienz ordered a new double-deck saloon steamer in 1905, it envisioned a steamboat that would surpass all other ships on both lakes in terms of size, performance and elegance. Even today, the venerable lady from the Belle Époque combines state-of-the-art technology, stylish ambience and ultimate comfort.

Swiss Army Knife

    Official commemorative coin 2018
    Swiss Army Knife

  • 1891 Schwyz-born Karl Elsener founded the Swiss cutlers' association with the aim of manufacturing the soldiers' knives for the army together with other cutlers in Switzerland. The soldier's knife was very robust but also relatively heavy. So Karl Elsener developed a lighter and above all more elegant knife with even more functions. He called this pocket knife model the "Officer's and Sports Knife" and had it legally protected in 1897. For the export the knife was called "Swiss Army Knife".

    La Suisse steamboat

  • "La Suisse" has been the flagship of the CGN fleet (Compagnie générale de navigation) since 1910. The steamboat sails on Lake Geneva where it connects the French and Swiss shores with each other. Ever since it was launched, it has been considered the most beautiful Belle Époque steamboat in the world. From 2007 to 2009 it underwent extensive renovation and was once again restored with its original bow and stern figures. Swissmint is dedicating the second coin in the commemorative series "Swiss Steamships" to "La Suisse".

William Tell

Official commemorative coin 2018
William Tell

  • Despite William Tell being a legend, he is probably the best-known Swiss in the world. But who was Tell and why has the story about the apple shooting become a legend? It is probably his role as a freedom fighter who rebelled against oppression and power. This is a subject that has lost none of its topicality and this is why Tell is still a figure with which many Swiss identify today. The legend also lives on on Swissmint's new commemorative coin.
