Swiss Confederation, 2 Rappen 1850

Since January 1st, 2007, the little copper coins of 1 rappen are no longer part of the Swiss currency. Coins worth 2 rappens were withdrawn from circulation on 1978 already. Also the 5-rappen-coins have lost their meaning in daily trade in Switzerland. Moreover, the production of a 5-rappen-coin cost 6 rappens – clearly a losing deal.
