Swiss coins are great, especially older swiss coins, my dealer has a Unc 1922 silver 5 franc in his case, I've been eyeing it for a while, but can't find the extra cash to spend on a pricey coin like that. I do own a smaller 1932 silver 5 franc though, but it's worth about 10% as much, lol. The older (is it rappen?) copper coins are nice, I have a couple of them, and they are pretty cool. :ninja:




Btw, RD, you used 10 smileys in your post, you are a happy camper, lol.

I like the Swiss coins.


They are extremely well made and remarkably undervalued. Krause

has tripled their catalog prices for the cu/ ni francs in the last couple

years but they're still way too low.


These appear in mint sets so none are rare but mintages were usually

only 5 or 10,000. Attrition on these isn't extremely high but the sets are

the source of virtually all the singles that have been offerred over the



These coins mostly went into circulation and have been heavily worn

over the years. Most of the European coins suffered the same fate and

were then melted a few years ago. The Swiss coins are some of the few

still getting a workout.

Unless it a key date, no.

*Gets Krause*

And the Krause says...

HELL no!

You can get VF for a buck.

I got 2 franc 1964-B on AU-50 for 2 bucks from my coin dealer.



Silver coins were widely saved all over the world. The only ones that are

tough are those with low mintages.


Cu/ ni and other base metal coins were usually ignored and some are rare

no matter how high the mintages. This appears to be the case with the '68

and later large denomination Swiss coins.


These do look really nice in silver so there is widespread demand for the old-

er coins. These usually will bring a nice premium in unc and more in gem.
