Description of obverse and reverse Obverse: the coin picture shows a half profile to the left of the famous gold bust of Marcus Aurelius found in Aventicum. On the both sides of the head, the legend "AVENTICVM" and the roman date "MMXV" are applied. Reverse: parallel to the edge the legend CONFOEDERATIO HELVETICA 2015 steplike displaced in two lines; above of the centre the Swiss cross and at the bottom in three lines: 50 / B / FR.
A brief annotation Aventicum was built in the 1st century A.D., not long after the territory of the Helvetii was incorporated into the Roman Empire. Today, it is one of Switzerland's main archaeological sites and is of immense significance internationally for the Roman era. Identified over the years as the bust of Marcus Aurelius, this golden bust was discovered in a sewer of the Cigognier Temple on 19 April 1939. The treasure was probably hidden there during a period of major disturbances and was never retrieved by its owner.
