The Federal Mint, Swissmint, will release a 20 Swiss francs silver commemorative coin in January. And it plans to add a Federer SFr50 gold coin in May.
"Thank you Switzerland and Swissmint for this incredible honour and privilege," said the 38-year-old world number three.
Federer, a 20-time Grand Slam champion, is regarded as arguably the greatest tennis players ever.
