The reverse of the coin features a full-length image of Helvetia, the female personification of the Swiss Confederation.
Ultra Cameo Perfection
The Ultra Cameo designation is reserved for the highest quality proof coins that exhibit the spectacular contrast between the raised details which appear frosty and the deeply mirrored flat fields on the coin. Proof coins are struck using a specialized process involving polished dies and polished planchets. This polishing is what creates the Cameo effect. Proof 70 coins are simply flawless examples and they are always in demand with collectors.
