The Gulden was the currency of the Swiss canton of Fribourg until 1798. It was subdivided into 14 Batzen, each of 4 Kreuzer or 16 Denier. It was replaced by the Frank of the Helvetian Republic in 1798. This was, in turn, replaced by the Fribourg Frank.

Coins[edit]

In the late 18th century, copper 1 Denier coins were issued, together with billon Vierer (2 Denier), 1 Kreuzer and ½ Batzen, and silver 7, 14, 28 and 56 Kreuzer. The silver denominations were equal to ⅛, ¼, ½ and 1 Gulden.
