The Frank was the currency of the Helvetian Republic from 1798. The Helvetian Republic ceased issuing coins in 1803. Nidwalden issued coins in 1811 and Obwalden issued coins in 1812. In 1850, the Swiss franc was introduced, with 1 1⁄2 Swiss francs = 1 Unterwalden Frank.
Both half cantons issued billon coins in denominations of 1⁄2 and 1 Batzen, together with silver coins for 5 Batzen.
