Switzerland 5 Franc 1922 to Date | 5 franc switzerland cross coat branch nickel stalk domenus way frove helvetia helvetic frank swiss helvetische fancs francs switz helvetica 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.
