|What is the currency of Switzerland? What is a Swiss franc? What does CHF mean?|
Home > Swiss bank accounts > FAQ > Before you order > Basics > Swiss franc
The Swiss franc is the currency of Switzerland. This is one of the world's most stable currencies, thanks to the neutrality, fiercely conservative monetary policy and ample gold reserves of the Swiss national bank.
Swiss francs are shortened either with the official banking name CHF (from the latin name of the country Confederation Helvetica, CH) or sometimes just Fr. or Sfr.
On our website we list amounts and prices in Swiss francs and use CHF as sign.
For example, CHF.1,000 means "A thousand Swiss francs"
Please note that we can open you an account in almost any currency. Most people open Swiss franc, US dollar, Euro or Sterling accounts but most other currencies are available too. You can bank entirely in the currency you choose for your account, and sometimes you can even have a multiple currency account.
