This is an actual Swiss 2 francs coin that has been meticulously hand-cut with a jeweler's saw, and then set as a pin. Designed as a tie tack or lapel pin, but can be worn anywhere the post will fit.
The post is soldered, not glued, to the back of the coin for strength and durability. The deluxe clutch features a low-profile release that helps ensure that ties lie flat, while holding the pin more securely than other styles.
Helvetia is the national personification of Switzerland. She is often pictured as she is on this coin, with a lance and shield emblazoned with the Swiss flag. Her name is derived from the Helvetii, the tribe of people inhabiting the Swiss Plateau prior to the arrival of the Roman Empire.
