The Frank was the currency of the Helvetic Republic from 1798, replacing the Gulden in Luzern. The Helvetian Republic ceased issuing coins in 1803 and Luzern once again issued coins its own coins, from 1803 to 1846.
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.
In 1850, the Swiss franc was introduced, with 1 1⁄2 Swiss francs = 1 Luzern Frank.
