Official “Furka Pass” commemorative coin
Limited edition. Hurry up, order now!
With its Furka Pass silver coin, Swissmint continues the three-part Swiss Alpine Passes coin series started last year. The coin's design shows the landscape relief of the Furka Pass in the background and a historic Berna/Seitz postal bus in the foreground.
At an altitude of 2,429 metres above sea level, Furka Pass is one of the highest and most impressive Alpine passes in Switzerland. It connects the village of Gletsch in the canton of Valais with Andermatt in the canton of Uri and, together with the Oberalp Pass, forms an intra-Alpine east-west link. The area is one of the snowiest in Switzerland. The European watershed runs along the pass: the Rhone flows southwest towards the Mediterranean, while the (Furka-)Reuss sweeps northeast into the Rhine and the North Sea.
During the summer months, PostBus runs 6 daily services to the top of Furka Pass.
