Switzerland 5 Franc  1922 to Date
Switzerland 5 Franc 1922 to Date

These 5 francs coins from Switzerland were minted in silver at the beginning, but then, in 1968, the same pattern was struck in copper-nickel. The modern copper-nickel coins are worth face value, 5 Swiss francs, or about $5 US dollars. A collector might pay a few US dollars over face to add an uncirculated specimen to his or her collection. The pre-1968 silver coins carry significant value, as shown by the catalog prices below.
