A 50 franc gold coin with Federer’s image on it will be minted next year. The government says the 20-time Grand Slam champion is “probably Switzerland's most successful individual sportsman, he is also the perfect ambassador for Switzerland.”
The “heads” side of the coin shows Federer playing a one-handed backhand. The government says a limited edition of up to 95,000 Federer coins can be ordered, costing 30 Swiss francs. They will be dispatched in January.
The 50 franc coin will have a different design.
