  • Roger Federer first living man on Swiss franc

A commemorative silver coin depicting tennis champion Roger Federer is proving so popular that it's crippling the website of Switzerland's mint. For the 20-franc coin, the pre-sale has already begun and is expected to run until December 19 or until the first minting run of 55,000 units gets sold out - whichever happens first.

Reportedly, next year there will be more coins with Federer's face on them.

The mint plans to also release gold coins in Federer's honour in May next year.

Tennis legend Roger Federer will become the first living person in Switzerland to have a coin minted in his honour.

Featuring Roger Federer holding a tennis racket, it was offered for sale on Monday.

Federer thanked his country for the honours, sharing a video of the making of the coins on his social media pages. Federer fanatics can purchase the uncirculated coin for CHF30 ($30) from December 2-19 through the Swissmint internet site. "He has a unique way of embodying likeability, down-to-earthness, success and eloquence", the Swissmint wrote on its site.

It's the first time in its history that Swissmint has created a commemorative coin to honour a living person.

This year's commemorative Swiss coins included the 50th anniversary of the moon landings, the Furka Pass and the roe deer.

Swissmint cited his 237 straight weeks at world No. 1 and his grand slam haul before mentioning his off-court charitable work, including his foundation.

Federer has also been in a total of 31 Grand Slam finals.

Meanwhile, the Swiss ace has had other off-court commemorations as well.
