In addition to the seven regular Swiss circulation coins in uncirculated quality, the annual BU coin set also features the 10-franc bi-metal commemorative coin "Flora Alpina - Gentiana".

The design of this second commemorative coin in the three-part series "FLORA ALPINA" is the Gentiana. The graphic artist Jenny Leibundgut, from Bern, designed the new 10-franc bimetallic coin.

Gentiana is a flowering plant notable for its mostly large, trumpet-shaped flowers, which are often of an intense blue. The name is a tribute to Gentius, an Illyrian king who may have been the discoverer of the root of the flower's tonic properties.
