The Frank was the currency of the Helvetian Republic from 1798. The Helvetian Republic ceased issuing coins in 1803. Vaud issued coins between 1804 and 1834. In 1850, the Swiss franc was introduced, with an exchange rate of 1 Swiss Franc = 7 Batz ( 1 3⁄7 Swiss francs = 1 Vaud franc).
Billon coins were issued in denominations of 1 and 2 1⁄2 rappes, 1⁄2 and 1 batz, with silver coins for 5, 10, 20 and 40 batz and 1 franc.
