Tennis: Federer's face to be minted on Swiss coin


The Swiss government will produce about 100,000 pieces of 20-franc silver commemorative coin with tennis player Roger Federer's image on it.

"The Federal Mint Swissmint is honouring Roger Federer and, for the first time in its history, dedicating a Swiss commemorative coin to a living person," said Swissmint, which is responsible for manufacturing Swiss franc coins.

Federer is the 20-time Grand Slam champion.

The heads side of the coin shows Federer face with tennis racket.

The coins will be released in January.
