Earlier this year, Swissmint issued a 20 fr collector coin dedicated to the 1517 Reformation. The silver coin focuses on and depicts the Swiss reformers Calvin and Zwingli. Regular version costs 30 fr, proof 60 fr.

And then there is ... Yodeling.

They expect about 15,000 performers and an audience of more than 150,000 in June. Images (3): Swissmint.
