It’s the first time a coin has been issued to mark the achievements of a living person.

Two types will be struck – a silver coin which will be released in January and then a gold coin later in 2020.

Swissmint says Federer is the most well-known Swiss in the world – both on and off the court.

He’s won the most men’s grand slam titles and he’s very active in the charity sector ands is a UNICEF goodwill ambassador.

The silver coins will cost CHF 30 and will have a face value of CHF 20. They’ll be available from the mint next year.
