The coin has a value of 1/4 of a Swiss franc ($0.26) and can be ordered online.

According to Swissmint, 999 of the coins have been made, and a single coin will be sold for 199 francs (NZ$312). Each coin will be accompanied with a special magnifying glass so owners can see Einstein.

The gold coin represents Swissmint’s official 2020 commemorative coin and celebrates the works of Einstein.
