Switzerland 5, 10, and 20 Rappen 1850 to 1877

The 1 and 2 rappen coins from Switzerland look like these 5, 10, and 20 rappen coins, except the smaller denominations are made out of bronze instead of billon and the smaller denominations were minted far longer, to 1946. Nevertheless, these larger denomination coins are worth quite a bit of money, especially when in good condition.
