Berne frank

Berne frank

The Frank was the currency of the Swiss canton of Berne between 1798 and 1850. It was subdivided into 10 "Batzen", each of 10 "Rappen".


The Frank was the currency of the Helvetian Republic from 1798, replacing the Thaler in Berne. The Helvetian Republic ceased issuing coins in 1803. Berne issued coins between 1808 and 1836. In 1850, the Swiss franc was introduced, with 1½ Swiss francs = 1 Berne Frank.


Billon coins were issued in denominations of 1, 2, 2½ and 5 Rappen, ½ and 1 Batzen, with silver coins for 2½ and 5 Batzen and 1, 2 and 4 Franken. Berne also counterstamped various French écu and 6 livres for use as 40 Batzen coins.
