The Frank was the currency of the Helvetian Republic from 1798, replacing the Gulden in Fribourg. The Helvetian Republic ceased issuing coins in 1803. Fribourg issued coins between 1806 and 1836. In 1850, the Swiss franc was introduced, with 1 1⁄2 Swiss francs = 1 Fribourg Frank.
Billon coins were issued in denominations of 2 1⁄2 and 5 Rappen, 1⁄2 and 1 Batzen, with silver coins for 5 and 10 Batzen and 4 Franken. The 2 1⁄2 Rappen was also denominated as 1 Kreuzer.
