Swiss Confederation, 10 Rappen 1931

The first 10 rappen-coins bore a Swiss shield with oak leaves and on the reverse the indication of value. In 1879, however, the small coins got a new motif: The head of Helvetia wearing a diadem with the inscription LIBERTAS was used for the first time on the 10 and 5 rappen pieces; the coins of 20 rappen bear the head of Liberty since 1881. As from then the coin image has been used without any changes. The engraver Karl Schwenzer from Württemberg cut the dies for these coins, yet did not sign them.
