Portrait of the SICF

The Swiss Inventory of Coin Finds (SICF) was founded in 1992 by the Swiss Academy of Humanities and Social Sciences (SAHS). We have been located since 2015 at Hirschengraben 11, close to the railway station in Berne.

As a centre for issues concerning coins and coin finds in Switzerland, we are in constant contact with various public bodies and private individuals. We offer practical help and advice by making available our database and various publications with the aim of making the recovered artefacts accessible to both researchers and amateur enthusiasts.

The flyer and the fourteen-page brochure of the SICF provide a brief overview and can be downloaded as PDF files here.
