Alpine Edelweiss

Official commemorative coin 2016
Alpine Edelweiss

  • The edelweiss, the Alpine symbol par excellence, has achieved cult status. Anyone bold enough to pick this rare and difficult-to-access flower for his beloved will certainly be rewarded. The highly coveted mountain flower belongs to the Asteraceae family. The star-shaped part with fuzzy, white 'petals' (technically, bracts) which is generally considered to be the flower is in actual fact not the flower, but a pseudanthium.

Hornussen

    Official commemorative coin 2015
    'Hornussen'

  • "Hornussen" is considered to be one of the three traditional Swiss national sports. In today's game, the player hits the "Hornuss" or puck with an elastic stick made from carbon fibre off the bock towards the "Ries" or opponent's field. The opposing team or "Abtuer" located there tries to stop the puck or "Hornuss" in flight by hitting it as soon as possible in the air with a shingle before the puck falls on the ground.
