Switzerland's 20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer will become the first living person to be celebrated on a coin in the country, BBC reports.

The Federal Mint, Swissmint, will release a 20 Swiss francs silver commemorative coin in January.

It plans to add a Federer SFr50 gold coin in May.

"Thank you Switzerland and Swissmint for this incredible honor and privilege," said the 38-year-old world number three.
