On 29 September 2022, Swissmint will launch the new special coin Switzerland's watchmaking industry "Timemachine”. It is the first gold coin from Swissmint with a face value of CHF 25 to enter circulation.
The beginnings of watchmaking in Switzerland are closely linked to the Huguenot religious refugees who came to Geneva in the 16th century and brought their craftsmanship with them. From Geneva, known locally as the city of Calvin, watchmaking spread all over Switzerland. The importance of the Swiss watchmaking industry and the worldwide popularity of its products are symbolically represented on the coin with a watch movement and globe.
The 25-franc gold coin, designed by the Biel artist Remo Lienhard / WES 21, is available for purchase only in proof quality in a presentation case at our online-shop as well as from some coin dealers and banks
