The Frank was the currency of the Helvetian Republic from 1798. The Helvetian Republic ceased issuing coins in 1803. Zürich issued coins between 1806 and 1848. In 1850, the Swiss franc was introduced, with 1 1⁄2 Swiss francs = 1 Zürich Frank.
Billon coins were issued in denominations of 1 and 2 Rappen, with the 1 Rappen initially denominated as 3 Haller. Silver coins were struck for 10 Schillinge, 8, 10, 20 and 40 Batzen.
