The Swiss franc is the currency that is officially used in Switzerland and Liechtenstein, while also used in some other regions. The franc was introduced in 1850 as a currency used in the whole Switzerland, replacing different currencies that were used in different parts of the country (some of them were also called “franc”). The franc is considered a safe currency because of the stability of the Swiss economy and the near-zero inflation of the currency. Previously, the law that demanded that 40 percent of printed money should be supported by gold also supported the view on the franc as a safe currency, but that requirement was terminated in 2000.
