There is no better brand ambassador of the game of tennis than Swissman Roger Federer. One of the most known faces in the world of tennis, Roger Federer is not called GOAT for no apparent reason. The man is a thorough gentleman on and off the field and has millions of fans all across the globe.
Now, Roger Federer has added another feather to his already full cap.
Swissmint has dedicated a commemorative 20-franc silver coin to this tennis legend. And it the very first time that a living person has been bestowed this honour. According to a press report, Federer is not only Switzerland’s most successful living sportsperson, but he also is the perfect ambassador for the tiny landlocked nation.
Federer is one of the most successful sportspersons ever. He has won a record 237 consecutive weeks as world number one. Further, he has won a total of 20 men’s singles Grand Slams – the most ever by a tennis player. But Federer is also known for his exploits off the field. He has successfully set up the Roger Federer Foundation to provide financial aid for projects for children.
The pre-sales of this coin has started on 2nd December 2019 and will end on 19th December. The official date of issue is 23rd January 2020. You can pre-order your coin exclusively from www.swissmintshop.ch.
And don’t worry if you have missed out on these coins. In May 2020, Swissmint will issue a 50-franc Roger Federer gold coin featuring a different design.
