Fribourg gulden

The Gulden was the currency of the Swiss canton of Fribourg until 1798. It was subdivided into 14 Batzen, each of 4 Kreuzer or 16 Denier. It was replaced by the Frank of the Helvetian Republic in 1798. This was, in turn, replaced by the Fribourg Frank.


In the late 18th century, copper 1 Denier coins were issued, together with billon Vierer (2 Denier), 1 Kreuzer and ½ Batzen, and silver 7, 14, 28 and 56 Kreuzer. The silver denominations were equal to ⅛, ¼, ½ and 1 Gulden.
