Huguenin Switzerland is a maker of tokens and medals See here

Usually signed as Huguenin but sometimes with Switzerland included.

I tried several times to get information from Huguenin with regard to a Namibian coin.

Funny enough the Swiss company did not even bother to reply.

The coin in question ... a gold Namibian 2 Dollar coin

It would have been polite and friendly to answer, but they are under no obligation to be polite or friendly. If you think it would help, I can provide a French translation and you may find volunteers for a German or Italian translation (depending on where they are headquartered)

Perhaps you can post your question here. I don't guarantee anyone has the answer, but our collective documentation and knowledge is significant.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

From their website linked above.

In 1992, Huguenin began minting and selling the first coloured coins.
After the merger with the Neuchâtel firm Kramer in 1999, Huguenin + Kramer joined forces with Faude in 2002, giving birth to the company Faude & Huguenin SA.
