Switzerland (Vaud) 1 and 5 Batzen 1826 to 1834

Vaud is the name of one of the Swiss Cantons (states) in southwest Switzerland. They issued several coins with batzen denominations during the 1800s. This page applies only to coins that look like our picture. The 1 batz coins are made of billon, a low-grade silver. The 5 batz coins are made of higher-grade silver.

The coin catalogs report the following approximate values for all dates except as noted:

1 BATZ
worn: $6 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $15
well preserved: $40
fully uncirculated: $65
1 batz dated 1826 and 1834 are worth somewhat more than the other dates; these coins catalog at $100 in well preserved condition

5 BATZ
worn: $20 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $75
well preserved: $120
fully uncirculated: $200

Coins that are cleaned or otherwise damaged (stains, spots, scratches, etc.) are worth far less than these values. To convert catalog values to actual buy and sell values, see our Important Terminology page.
