The franc (German: Franken, French and Romansh: franc, Italian: franco; code: CHF) is the currency and legal tender of Switzerlandand Liechtenstein; it is also legal tender in the Italian exclave Campione d’Italia. Although not formally legal tender in the German exclaveBüsingen (the sole legal currency is the euro), it is widely used on a day-to-day basis. The Swiss National Bank issues banknotes and the federal Swissmint issues coins.
The Swiss franc is the only version of the franc still issued in Europe. The smaller denomination, a hundredth of a franc, is a Rappen(Rp.) in German, centime (c.) in French, centesimo (ct.) in Italian, and rap (rp.) in Romansh. The ISO code of the currency used by banks and financial institutions is CHF, although “Fr.” is used by most businesses and advertisers; some use SFr.; the Latinate “CHF” denotes Confoederatio Helvetica franc, because Latin is used as the neutral language representing the country given its quadrilingual populace.
