The franc (symbol: CHF; currency code: CHF) is the official currency of Switzerland and Liechtenstein. One (1) franc is subdivided into one hundred (100) units, with one hundredth of a franc called a rappen (German), centime (French), centesimo (Italian) and rap (Romansh).
Historically, the Swiss franc is regarded as a safe-haven currency with almost no inflation. It is often used as a global reserve currency and is the sixth most traded currency in the world.
Prior to 1798, approximately 860 different coins were in circulation in Switzerland. The Helvetic Republic introduced a currency based on the Berne thaler in 1798, which lasted until the end of the Helvetic Republic in 1803. The franc was introduced as the monetary unit of Switzerland following the first Federal Coinage Act in 1850 and replaced the different currencies of the Swiss cantons.
The Hungarian forint (symbol: Ft; currency code: HUF) is the official currency of Hungary. One (1) forint is equal to one hundred (100) fillér, although the circulation of fillér coins ceased in 1999.
The forint is issued by the Hungarian National Bank.
The Hungarian currency derives its name from the Italian city of Florence. It was adopted as official currency on August 1, 1946. The forint remained relatively stable until its devaluation in the early 1990s, yet has been fully convertible since 2001.
