Where is a coin with 'Confederatio Helvetica' on it from?


Answer by  debshink (60)

'Confederatio Helvetica' is Latin for the Swiss Confederation, or Switzerland. The term appears on Swiss coins, which are denominated in centimes and francs. While coin designs have changed little, prior to 1967 francs were minted in silver. Many denominations are still used as legal tender; however the 1- and 2-centime coins have been demonetized.

This coin would be from Switzerland. Helvetica is the Latin term for Switzerland. The coin is called Schweizer Franken or franc and comes in denominations of 1/2, 1, 2 and franc. 1 Franken is made up of 100 Rappen/centime (like US cents) with denominations of 5, 10 and 20.
