Swiss Confederation, Private Proof Issue of 20 Ronds by the Medallist Edouard Durussel

This private pattern coin of the Swiss engraver Edouard Durussel is an interesting and rare piece. In the 1870s Durussel had been commissioned by one Mr. Hunziker to create a series of utopian coins for the year 2000. This example symbolizes freedom of trade, as the attributes of the wheel and the wings on the female head indicate.
