The Frank was the currency of the Helvetian Republic from 1798, replacing the Gulden in Luzern. The Helvetian Republic ceased issuing coins in 1803. Luzern issued coins between 1803 and 1846. In 1850, the Swiss franc was introduced, with 1 1⁄2 Swiss francs = 1 Luzern Frank.
Copper coins were issued in denominations of 1 Angster and 1 Rappen, together with billon 1⁄2 and 1 Batzen, silver 2 1⁄2, 5 and 10 Batzen and 4 Franken and gold 10 and 20 Franken.
