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 essentially zero. A collector might pay a few US dollars to add an uncirculated specimen to his or her collection. But the pre-1968 silver coins carry decent value, as shown by the catalog prices below.
