Vreneli is the informal name used to refer to the range of legal tender gold coins which exist in three denominations: 10, 20, and 100 francs. The name "Vreneli" was attributed to the female head by Neuchâtel medalist Fritz Ulisse Landry. The obverse of the Swiss Vreneli depicts the bust of a young woman, known as the "Swiss Miss," with a bridal hairstyle. The charming design is adorned with Edelweiss, a wooly flower with star-shaped petals, on her collar. The majestic Swiss Alps fill the background, creating a picturesque scene.
