Glarus frank

The Frank was the currency of the Swiss canton of Glarus between 1798 and 1850. It was subdivided into 100 "Rappen", with the "Schilling" worth 3 Rappen.


The Frank was the currency of the Helvetian Republic from 1798. The Helvetian Republic ceased issuing coins in 1803. Glarus issued coins between 1806 and 1814. In 1850, the Swiss franc was introduced, with 1½ Swiss francs = 1 Glarus Frank.


Billon coins were issued 1806 - 1814 in denominations of 1 and 3 Schilling, with silver coins for 15 Schilling. All coins were also denominated in Rappen.
