The Frank was the currency of the Helvetian Republic from 1798. The Helvetian Republic ceased issuing coins in 1803. Solothurn issued coins between 1805 and 1830. In 1850, the Swiss franc was introduced, with 1 1⁄2 Swiss francs = 1 Solothurn Frank.
Billon coins were issued in denominations of 1, 2 1⁄2 and 5 Rappen, and 1 Batzen, with silver coins for 5 Batzen, 1 and 4 Franken, and gold 8, 16 and 32 Franken. The 2 1⁄2 Rappen was also denominated as 1 Kreuzer.
