I'll start it off with this one, a 1 Batzen (deemed equivalent to a tenth of a franc) from Bern, improbably plucked from a tray of mostly American wheat cents. This particular variety is cataloged as KM #194.1, and was stuck in billon. You can see traces of silver coloration in the recesses.

Here's another billon issue (as well as yet another "bargain bin" rescue), this one from Geneva and denominated at 4 centimes. The catalog reference is KM #127. 331 thousand were struck, and there was a silver presentation version as well.

Here're a few more -

1850BB 10 rappen, another billon coin (just 10% silver). This was the first year of issue, & the most common with 8.78 million struck. "BB" denoted the Strasbourg mint, where these were again made the following year. They were produced also in 1871, 1873, 1875, & 1876 in Bern ("B" mint mark). The 1875 is extremely scarce.






1866B 1 rappen, with 1 million struck at Bern that year but nonetheless still designated by Numista as "rare". This denomination was produced in essentially unchanged form all the way from 1850 through 1941!






1894A ½ franc, another exceptionally long lived design struck in .835 fine silver from 1875 through 1967. In that entire series, however, the 1894 was the only one to bear an "A" mint mark, having been struck that year in Paris rather than at Bern.
