The Gulden was the currency of the Swiss canton of Schwyz until 1798. It was subdivided into 40 Schilling, each of 3 Rappen or 6 Angster. Coins were also issued denominated in Groschen. It was replaced by the Frank of the Helvetian Republic in 1798. This was, in turn, replaced by the Schwyz Frank.


In the late 18th century, copper coins were issued for 1 Angster and 1 Rappen, together with billon 1 Rappen and 1 Groschen. Silver coins were issued in denominations of 5 and 10 Schilling, ½ and 1 Gulden.
