History[edit]

The Frank was the currency of the Helvetian Republic from 1798, replacing the Thaler in Schaffhausen. The Helvetian Republic ceased issuing coins in 1803. Schaffhausen issued coins between 1808 and 1809. In 1850, the Swiss franc was introduced, with 1½ Swiss francs = 1 Schaffhausen Frank.

Coins[edit]

Billon coins were issued in denominations of 1 Kreuzer, ½ and 1 Batzen.
