I am an American in Germany and Switzerland and Austria and just to let you guys know a slang word for a heap of money is ''Batzen'' in Germany, and I know I understand where this comes from. Thanks.

1c5d7n5m - that is an incredible coin, never seen one like that before!

My contribution is much more modest - an 1897 20-rappen. But it has one interesting claim to fame - I received it in change in Montreux, Switzerland, in June 1981!

A testament to the design longevity of Swiss coins. That 20 Rappen design has been in use since 1881!

it is a strange coin indeed; why make a square coin instead of the regular circular type?
the square "klippe" type was made for other types of coin in the same period, also in Belgium and Holland, probably to give as a present

originally the "klippe" talers or daalders were made out of necessity when the city was under siege and regular minting was not possible

Came across these billon 1 Batzen coins today, of the type with which I started this thread off a couple years back.





The one on the left is an 1827 issue of the Canton of Vaud, the other an 1826 Basel.
