  • Roger Federer to become first living person to be celebrated on Swiss coins

The Swiss government says it will produce a 20 franc silver coin with Roger Federer's image on it.

The face of the 20-time Grand Slam victor will be minted on the silver coin, which is expected to be issued on January 23, 2020.

The second currency, this one of gold and worth 50 francs (45 euros and a half), will arrive on a date not yet specified next May, Swissmint said in a statement.

"As well as being probably Switzerland's most successful individual sportsman, he is also the flawless ambassador for Switzerland", the Swiss government said in a press release.

"The ideal ambassador for Switzerland". "He has a unique way of embodying likeability, down-to-earthiness, success and eloquence".

"Thank you Switzerland and Swissmint for this incredible honour and privilege", said the 38-year-old world number three. The coins are available for purchase on Swissmint's web shop through December 19 or until the 55,000 units are sold.

Up to 95,000 coins will be made available.

The coins will be issued beginning January 23, 2020.

Back in April 2007, the Swiss Post issued a special one-franc stamp to celebrate Roger's extraordinary career, never giving the same honor to a living person before.

Earlier this year, commemorative coins were dedicated to the Apollo 11 moon landing and the centenary of the Circus Knie.
