In Dubai, Federer celebrated the 100th ATP crown, earning two more ATP 500 trophies in Halle and Basel to stay in front of the young competitors Stefanos Tsitsipas, Daniil Medvedev, Alexander Zverev and Dominic Thiem for another year.

One of the greatest male tennis players to ever do it can now add having his face printed on money to his long list of accomplishments.

Anticipating high demand for the coin, Swissmint has launched for the first time a pre-sale of an "uncirculated quality" of the coin.

Being a 20-time Grand Slam champion, it is appropriate he gets the 20 franc coin.

"In addition to his sporting brilliance, Roger Federer is above all the ideal ambassador for Switzerland", Bern, Switzerland-based Swissmint, which is responsible for the minting of Swiss coins, said in a statement.

A 50 franc gold coin with Federer's image on it will be shaved next year.

The limited edition coin will cost 30 Swiss francs and 95,000 of the coins can be ordered.
