Coin Story

Due to the extreme differences in height from 195 m [640 ft] above sea level to over 4600 m [14,000 ft] Switzerland displays a great variety of climates with the corresponding plants and animals. While sitting under decorative palms growing in an almost Mediterranean climate along the shores of Lago Maggiore and Lake Lugano in southern Switzerland you may have a look at mountain peaks covered by eternal snow. Chamois and wild boar, hart, fox and bauson live in the forests, but sometimes they can even be seen at distances of a few hundred feet in the suburbs. The wild hare has become rare.

Reverse Design

The reverse features a Capricorn in ultra high relief (up to 9/10mm). The perfect illustration of the animal, due to its natural rocky habitat. It captures the capricorn in a fascinating way. The antique finish of the coin give it the final touch! A true piece of art.

Obverse Design

The obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the year of issue and the denomination of the coin.

Packaging

The Swiss Wildlife - Capricorn silver coin comes encapsulated with a Certificate of Authenticity and special frame.
