The Swiss parliament panel will discuss a proposal aimed at introducing a new currency, or a so-called gold franc.Under the proposal, which will be debated in the lower house’s economic panel in Bern today, one coin in gold would be worth about 5 Swiss francs $5.30, the Swiss newspaper reported. The Swiss franc would remain the official currency, the paper said.The proposal may lead to a wider debate about the Swiss franc and the role gold might again play to protect the Swiss franc from currency debasement.The initiative is part of the “Healthy Currency” campaign which is being promoted by the country’s biggest party – the conservative Swiss People’s Party SVP.
