Federer gets a major honour in Switzerland

Dec 06, 2019 21:04 IST

The Swiss government on Monday announced that it will mint special silver coins bearing the face of 20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer. The silver coins will be worth 20 francs and will be put into circulation from January next year. This is the first time that the Swiss government is dedicating a commemorative coin to a living person. The government feels that Federer is Switzerland's most successful individual sportsman and is also the perfect ambassador for the nation.
