The first digital design naturally shows the Matterhorn, Europe’s most famous pyramid-shaped mountain. 2,500 to 3,000 mountaineers from all over the world try to conquer the 4,478-metre-high Matterhorn every year. On peak days, there are over 100 Alpinists climbing it. Even if you don’t spot Reinhold Messner climbing the ice and being filmed from a kiosk perched at a dizzying height, you may at least spot a marmot or two in the area. The striking profile of the Matterhorn even served as a design for a world-famous Swiss chocolate brand, and also stands for action-packed mountain adventures in theme parks including Disney and Europapark.

The 4,357-metre high Dent Blanche is a prominent free-standing pyramid located at the end of the Matter Valley, ten kilometres west of Zermatt. With its distinctive shape, it makes a very good neighbour for the Matterhorn. Four airy, long ridges stretch out in all four main points of the compass. The first time the summit was climbed was via the southern ridge – the Wandfluegrat – on 18 July 1862. It was only in 1966 that the northern ridge was climbed for the first time, a feat that is still considered one of the most dangerous undertakings in Valais. The Dent Blanche is, in general, one of the toughest 4,000-metre climbs in the Alps. Incidentally, the language divide between French-speaking and German-speaking Switzerland runs precisely along the summit of the Dent Blanche.

Sewing machines, sports shops and even a railway line: they all bear its name. But, at 4,049 metres above sea level, it is the Piz Bernina alone the bears the crown – a mountain that could even lay claim to the title of the “Mount Everest of the Engadin”. After all, this is the only 4,000-metre-high mountain in the Eastern Alps. For a long time, it was considered unscalable – until 1850, when the Swiss forestry engineer, mountain topographer and Graubünden local Johann Wilhelm Fortunat Coaz became the first person to reach the main summit. Piz Bernina actually has three summits, which are scarcely distinguishable from one another. Alongside the main summit, there is the southern summit – the 4,020-metre-high Spalla, where the land border between Switzerland and Italy runs. Meanwhile, the northern summit – the 3,995-metre-high Piz Bianco – is renowned for boasting the most beautiful ice ridge in the Alps: the infamous Biancograt.

Located in the Canton of Appenzell, the Säntis can be found in one of the most stunning nature reserves in Europe. Provided the visibility is good, the 2,502-metre-high peak boasts an unobstructed view over six countries: Germany, Austria, Liechtenstein, France, Italy and the Swiss Alps. What’s more, the Säntis is a mountain that is full of weather superlatives: this is not only where the largest quantity of snow falls in Switzerland, it is also the wettest part of the country. The Säntis also sees the most lightning. In addition, no other mountain station has gathered data for as long a time as one at the Säntis. The summit, however, is actually quite easy to reach thanks to the cable car that was erected back in 1935.

The Pilatus is not a mountain with a closed summit structure, but rather a massif made up of multiple peaks. It is located on the borders between the Cantons of Lucerne, Nidwalden and Obwalden. Its highest point is the Tomlishorn, at an altitude of 2,128 metres above sea level. Lucerne’s very own mountain, which boasts magnificent views, is home to the Pilatus Kulm mountain station on the Pilatus railway, complete with a viewing terrace, a panorama gallery and two mountain hotels. In the past, the Pilatus was not the celebrated local mountain for the people of Lucerne that it is today, but rather a gloomy place plagued by treacherous storms and waterfalls that tumbled down towards the city. It became known for dragons and vermin, witches and wizards, but was also home to decent mountain folk who were kind to the locals and protected the chamois, but also punished the wicked and cruel.

The Dufourspitze, located in the Valais Alps, is, at a height of 4,634 metres above sea level, the highest summit in all of Switzerland and German-speaking Europe. When the mountain was climbed for the first time in 1855, it was still called Gornergrathorn. It was later renamed in honour of the Swiss general Guillaume-Henri Dufour, famous for being the publisher of the first series of maps covering Switzerland and for co-founding the International Committee of the Red Cross. The first time it was climbed also marked the beginning of the “golden age of alpinism”. Mountain climbing became a goal in itself: from this point onwards, people would climb for the challenge of it and the love of the mountains – not to carry out research or to survey the area.

From between Lake Lucerne, Lake Zug and Lake Lauerz rises the Rigi – also known as the “Queen of the Mountains”. Its highest point is the 1,797-metre-high Rigi Kulm. If the visibility is just right, the Rigi Kulm offers views over 620 Alpine peaks, 13 lakes and 24 of the 26 Swiss cantons. Only Geneva and the city of Basel are out of range. As early as the 18th century, the Rigi was famed as a destination throughout Europe due to its unique location. In 1868, Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom herself “climbed” the Queen of the Mountains. Needless to say, she didn’t do so on foot, but instead went up on one of the ponies she had brought over to Switzerland from England. According to the historical records, she relished the mountain air at Kaltbad and Kulm, as she was struggling in the heatwave that beset Switzerland throughout nearly her entire visit.
Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau

Token ID: 8
Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau – the most famous peaks of the Bernese Oberland are often mentioned in a single breath. They are the landmark of the Jungfrau region. The Eiger is 3,970 metres high and lies to the south-west of Grindelwald. The Eiger summit was first reached in 1858. Yet mountaineers’ fascination has long been directed towards the challenging northern face of the Eiger. On 24 July 1938, an Austro-German team of four roped climbers successfully scaled what was once considered the impenetrable “wall of death” for the very first time. One of these climbers was a certain Heinrich Harrer, who later achieved international fame when his book “Seven Years in Tibet” was made into a film. At an altitude of just over 4,100 metres, the Mönch is also a veritable challenge for mountaineers. Though the word “Mönch” means “monk” in German, the mountain’s name actually derives from the word for gelding, i.e. castrated male horses that grazed on the Alpine meadows at the foot of the mountain. The Jungfrau is the highest of the three mountains, at 4,158 metres above sea level. Since 2001, the Jungfrau and the Aletsch Glacier, along with their surrounding area, have been classified as a natural UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Matterhorn with Marmot

Token ID: 9
Around 1,000 marmots live right at the foot of the Matterhorn in the vicinity of Zermatt. They can be seen in particularly large numbers on the Gornergrat ridge, at the Schwarzsee near Findeln, at Hubel and around Furi. Their burrows are clearly visible from the hiking trails. In Zermatt, they say the marmots come out on St Joseph’s Day, i.e. on 19 March. By that time, they are no longer hibernating and begin exploring their environment, waiting for the first spring herbs, grasses and flowers to sprout. In the weeks prior to that, they slowly begin emerging from their cosy, hay-padded nests inside their large network of burrows, gazing out into the glistening spring light. This marks the end of their six-month hibernation period, and the excitement of the warm season ahead breathes new life into them. This is also noticeable in the cute little creatures’ heartbeat. While in winter their body temperature drops to five degrees Celsius and their hearts beat only around 20 times per minute, in summer they race at around 200 beats.
Piz Bernina with Ibex
Print run: 250 (special edition)
Token ID: 10
Around 17,000 ibexes live in Switzerland today – 6,000 of them in the Canton of Graubünden alone. The “King of the Alps” enjoys a special place in Switzerland’s largest canton. For example, it is also the canton’s heraldic animal. Gian and Giachen, the two Graubünden ibexes who dutifully advertise holidays in Graubünden, have also become very well known. Yet it is not very apparent that there are any ibexes in our country at all. In the 17th century, they were on the verge of extinction. The ibex was considered a hunting trophy, as it was believed to have superpowers. Its so-called heart bone, its hide, blood, ground-up horn and even its excrement were all sold as remedies. Its meat was also in great demand for thousands of years. For example, Ötzi the Iceman’s last meal was dried ibex with fern. It is thanks to the Italian King Vittorio Emanuele II that this noble animal has survived. He had the remaining 100 ibexes placed under protection in 1856. The ibex found its way back into Switzerland thanks to smugglers. In 1906, they brought the first ibex over the border from Italy.
Säntis with cow

Token ID: 11
Nowhere in Switzerland are the traditional processions of livestock up and down the Alps more celebrated than in the canton of Appenzell. For many farming communities, the procession up to the alpine meadows in May or June is the most beautiful day of the year. An alpine herdsman leads the bell cows. The three harmonised bells around the animals’ necks are probably the only instruments in the world that are played by cows. The bell cows are usually followed by four herdsmen. Their job is to sing and yodel. They also ensure that the herd stays together. The cows and other livestock stay up in the alpine meadows for eight to ten weeks. The procession back down from the alpine meadows takes place by 30 September at the latest. It follows the same pattern as on the way up. Unlike in Appenzell Ausserrhoden, where the alpine herdsmen celebrate the downward procession at the foot of the Säntis mountain on a single day, the villagers of Appenzell Innerrhoden spend several afternoons in the late summer ringing bells and yodelling to mark the end of the alpine grazing period.

On the Rigi – the Queen of the Mountains – you may sometimes also come across a king: the king of the birds. The Rigi massif is home to around one hundred different species of birds – including the golden eagle. Just imagine the view that eagle enjoys as it flies above the Rigi! It’s incredible enough for us mere humans. It’s especially amazing when we consider that eagles have much sharper eyes than we do. While we humans can only focus on objects at a distance of about 50 metres, eagles can spot their prey from several kilometres away.
Pilatus with dragon
Print run: 50 (special edition)
Token ID: 13
Many myths and legends surround Mount Pilatus. For example, it is said that in the summer of 1421, a huge dragon flying to Mount Pilatus crashed to the ground so close to a farmer named Stämpflin that it caused him to faint. When the farmer came to, he found a lump of clotted blood and a stone. This Dragon Stone, which was legally declared as having healing powers in 1509, can now be viewed in Lucerne’s Natural History Museum. In the chronicles of Swiss chronicler Petermann Etterlin (approx. 1430/40 to approx. 1509), you can read how Landamann Winkelried killed one of the dragons of Mount Pilatus: he wrapped thorny brambles around his spear and thrust it into the dragon’s open jaws, then finished the job with his sword. But a drop of the dragon’s blood sprayed onto his hand. This drop of blood – and the poisonous breath of the dying dragon – froze the blood in Winkelried’s veins and he also died. Many powers are ascribed to dragons – not just those in the Pilatus legends. They invariably represent primal power and mastery of the elements of fire, water, air and earth.

Nora Longatti x INES
Token ID: 8
Symbol: “For all who are here and all who are yet to come”
For Nora, this assignment raised political questions about the nation-building aspect of the framework for postage stamps. Nora was looking for imagery that is closer to the life of the people who actually inhabit this space called “Switzerland”.
In the film, which was created in close collaboration with INES, we see a staged everyday situation. People who share the same piece of ground are trying to live amongst each other – going to work, for a walk, on a lunchbreak with colleagues, etc. The gaze back towards the viewer at the end of the clip can be understood as resistance towards judgement and prejudice, as a gentle reminder or inspiration to stay in contact with your surroundings. The “New Switzerland”, for all who are here and all who are yet to come.

ID1 – BELLA= 65 000 ex – CHF 9,90
Bella and Walter are often together. He always makes sure of that. A typical characteristic of St Bernards is that they do not like to live alone. They are magnificent and gentle animals. They are loyal friends. These qualities make Bella the perfect family and support dog. They have changed over the centuries.The first entry in the Swiss Dog Registry of 1884 was a St Bernard named Léon. Three years later, the breed was officially recognized and declared the Swiss National Dog at an international congress of cynologists.The new crypto stamp with the token ID 1 is called Bella. It portrays the beauty of the St Bernard breed.
ID2 – EMMY – 45 000 ex – CHF 12
Emmy is calm and level-headed. She surveys her surroundings carefully, a characteristic that would probably have helped her in earlier times when searching for missing persons in the mountains. In those days, St Bernards had short hair – more practical in the deep snow of the Alps.They were always large. Females are slightly smaller than males at 65 to 80 cm. But they quickly reach a body weight of 80-90 kilogrammes. The normal life expectancy for St Bernards is nine years. Giulietta Alpina from Oberbüren SG became famous last year by reaching the age of 15 – the equivalent of 108 in human years.The new crypto stamp with the token ID 2 is called Emma. It portrays the power and strength of female St Bernards.
ID3 – ROCKY – 30 000 ex – CHF 15
Rocky is a wild one. His name is popular with boxers. It comes from the Italian name “Rocco”, which means “the roaring one”. While in English it can mean stony, rough or difficult. These words also describe the environment that gave rise to the legend of Barry, the most famous St Bernard. Rocky is a descendant of Barry.Barry lived in the monks’ hospice at the Great St Bernard Pass from 1800 to 1812. Barry is said to have rescued over 40 people. He died of old age in Bern in 1814. His preserved body is still on display in the Natural History Museum in Bern.The new crypto stamp with the token ID 3 is called Rocky. It portrays courage and fortitude.
ID4 – JARA – 18 000 ex – CHF 19
Jara – With its vivacity, Jara puts you in a good mood by bringing a breath of spring, like a butterfly fluttering over a meadow. On the other hand, his name of Czech origin means just that. He certainly loves running, but not like Magnum, who has recently made the whole Vatican talk about himself. This colleague of his Saint Bernard, in fact, in 2016 began a pilgrimage together with Claudio Rossetti which has just concluded in Rome, with a meeting with the Pope. Dogs of this breed are not as lazy as people think: it’s just a prejudice! They just don’t like to waste their energy. Jara also needs plenty of rest to stay fit and healthy.The new crypto-stamp with the ID 4 token is called Jara and represents the liveliness and agility of the St. Bernard.
ID5 – BERNA – 8 000 ex – CHF 29
Berna was born in the city from which it takes its name in the same year in which the Swiss capital advertised itself by exhibiting 100 BernARTiners, plastic works in the shape of St. Bernard scattered throughout its territory. Sympathetic by nature, with its meek and affectionate disposition, this breed has already collected some cinematic successes. The St. Bernard Beethoven, in fact, is the protagonist of seven films. The first, released in 1992, was a blockbuster with approximately $150 million raised worldwide. The new crypto-stamp with the ID 5 token is called Bern and represents the popularity of the St. Bernard.
ID6 – MILO – 4 500 ex – CHF 39
Milo is simply adorable: a giant, but sweet and affectionate. With his innate sense of protection from him, there is nothing to fear even when he is around children. Milo is very close to his masters and even if he is always on the alert, he loves being pampered by adults and children. The Saint Bernard is a breed with a deep sense of family, who needs contact and is very patient with children. Altruistic but also a bit stubborn, when he is annoyed he shows it. The new crypto-stamp with the ID 6 token is called Milo and represents the innate sense of protection in the Saint Bernard.
ID7 – FIDO – 2 500 ex – CHF 49
Fido is now of a certain age. His name comes from the Latin and means “faithful” and recalls the one chosen by Abraham Lincoln, the sixteenth president of the United States, for his beloved mestizo. Semper fidelis! Today this name is less and less widespread, but it is understood in an emblematic sense for every dog. The ancestors of the Saint Bernard were actually called Molossians. In cynophilia, this term indicates a hypernym attributable to any large and muscular dog. The name has its roots in a population of the same name that existed in antiquity which, originally from the south-west region of the Balkan peninsula, owned a notoriously large and strong shepherd dog breed, which instilled fear. The new crypto-stamp with the ID 7 token is called Fido and represents the reliability and loyalty of the St. Bernard.
ID8 – Fluffy – 1 000 ex – CHF 99,00
Fluffy is really fluffy, which is how he got his name. His long coat invites you to stroke him, which he likes very much. The youngest of the bunch was a puppy not so long ago and is still somewhat playful.
St Bernards can have either long or short hair, and their basic colour is white. They need grooming with a brush every two to three days, especially the long-haired type. During their seasonal change of coat, they grow considerable amounts of fur due to their size.
The new crypto stamp with the token ID 8 is called Fluffy. It depicts the St Bernard’s beautiful, well-groomed coat, with markings unique to each dog.
ID9 – LUCY – 350 ex – CHF 199
Lucy is said to love the morning light, but her name actually comes from the Latin word for “light”. Yet she always sleeps in.
All dogs spend much of their day snoozing, dozing or in deep slumber. Big, heavy dogs like St Bernards more so than smaller ones. They sleep a lot, but often not all in one go, and they adapt to their situation.
The new crypto stamp with the token ID 9 is called Lucy. It represents the St Bernard’s fondness for a nap – while being fully at people’s disposal when awake.
ID10 – LUNA – 250 ex – CHF 299
Lovely Luna certainly isn’t silent as the moon. She needs lots of exercise. She often tries to get her own way, which doesn’t always please her owners. But she learns quickly.
Although St Bernards are good-natured, gentle and obey instruction, they defend their territory and owners ferociously. That’s why St Bernards have to be trained when still puppies.
The new crypto stamp with the token ID 10 is called Luna. It represents the St Bernard’s intelligence and easiness to train.
ID11 – CAMARADE – 200 ex – CHF 399
Buddy is the coolest member of Walter’s pack. He wants to make up for the fact that practically every dog in the world is called “Buddy” like him. His name is very popular in B litters. Breeders give every litter their own letter. Then there’s the kennel name too.
This means Buddy was in the breeder’s second litter. His is one of the 10 most popular dog names in the world. Even Bill Clinton had a four-legged friend called Buddy, but his wasn’t a St Bernard.
The new crypto stamp with the token ID 11 is called Buddy. It represents all the cool dogs in the world.
ID12 – PENDILLER – 150ex – CHF 499
The male dog is known in the pack for his extraordinary sense of smell. Bob can find anything and anyone. If he wasn’t so heavy and didn’t have such long hair, he could be a direct descendant of Barry. He has long been replaced by the avalanche transceiver “Barryvox”. Barryvox is a Swiss invention that Swiss Post dedicated its own stamp to in 2022 to mark its 40th anniversary.
So Bob no longer traces the scent of avalanche victims. But he can do lots of other things, such as telling whether someone has low or high blood sugar.
The new crypto stamp with the token ID 12 is called Bob. It represents the St Bernard’s remarkably good nose.
ID13 – Aia – 50 ex – CHF 999.00
Aia’s owner is the developer of an artificial intelligence app. She took Aia’s name from the term “artificial intelligence”. AI-a. Perhaps one of her chatbots will be called Aia in honour of the intelligence of St. Bernards.
Aia enjoys rare moments of frivolity on walks with her owner, when she has to clear her head. The St. Bernards of the Barry foundation in Martigny go on walks every day, some of them even on the Great St. Bernard Pass while on holiday in summer. The foundation took over the breeding of the dogs in 2005 because the canons of the hospice were struggling to ensure both animal-friendly breeding and hospitality.
The new crypto stamp with the token ID 13 is called Aia. It represents the past and future of the St. Bernard.
