About the currency

Coins and notes

The Swiss franc (CHF) is subdivided into 100 rappen (Rp). Coins in current circulation include CHF1, CHF2, CHF5, 5Rp, 10Rp, 20Rp, and 50Rp, while banknotes include CHF10, CHF20, CHF50, CHF100, CHF200, and CHF1000.

Facts about the currency

  • Before the franc was introduced in 1798, there were about 860 different coins circulating Switzerland, all with different values and monetary systems (confusing much?!).
  • All franc banknotes are quadrilingual, displaying all information in the country’s four national languages.
  • The price of silver rose significantly in the late 1960s, making a silver franc coin’s metal value exceed its monetary value. This led to many silver coins being sent overseas for melting, which was then made illegal by the federal government. The melting of silver franc coins decreased when the collectible value of the remaining francs again exceeded their metal value again.
