Re: Swiss coins

about a month ago I found a 20 rappen piece from 1913.... Can you imagine what this coin would have 'seen' ? I know 20 rappen is not much now, doesn't buy you anything but what would it have bought back in 1913 ?

Re: Swiss coins

Maybe a bit irrelevant for this thread, but have anybody ever tried to change 50 chf note to 2 chf coins? Where can I do that for free or for a small fee?

Thanks,

If you increase that to 100.- you get a neat roll (applies to all coin sizes, 50 get you a roll)

You'd be better off doing that in Germany or France.

Most Swiss banks don't like to handle foreign coins.

That probably depends on the volume, and banks may handle things differently if you're not a customer.

Euro coins: No, too heavy for the value.
