Berne thaler

Berne thaler

The "Thaler" was the currency of the Swiss canton of Berne until 1798. It was subdivided into 40 "Batzen", each of 4 "Kreuzer". It was replaced by the Frank of the Helvetian Republic in 1798. This was, in turn, replaced by the Berne Frank.


In the late 18th century, billon coins were issued in denominations of ½ and 1 Kreuzer, ½ and 1 Batzen, together with silver 10 and 20 Kreuzer, ¼, ½ and 1 Thaler, and gold ½, 1 and 2 "Duplone". The ½ Kreuzer coins were inscribed as 1 "Vierer".
