... and now for something completely different!

What is the name of the female personification of her country whose name appears on the stamps of that country rather than the country's actual name?

Helvetia is the female personification of Switzerland and her name appears on the postage stamps of that country.

Two points if you answered correctly on the first attempt. One point if you needed more than one try.

I'm also giving Scepo a bonus for pointing out her name also appears on Swiss coins.
