2007 Switzerland 10 Rappen

Since 1879 the Swiss 10 Rappen has not changed. Minor changes maybe but it is the same crowned head with CONFOEDERATIO HELVETICA and the date. The other side has a wreath and the value with the B mint mark under the wreath.

Recently a group of Swiss citizens dumped  $2,800 in coins, I believe 8 million 5-rappen coins, representing each of its citizens and the minimum wage they want to make into law. Since Switzerland is one of richest countries in Europe they can afford to pay every adult that wage. Still the government is not pleased with the possibility despite many citizens that struggle without an official minimum wage law on the books.

Just like a coin that has at least two sides so does the issue. Limiting wages in Switzerland has kept the economy strong without abusing lower classes or giving to much entitlements to the rich. Yet when wages are limited so is innovation for both the rich and poor. If anyone can make it work it will be the Swiss.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 10 Rappen / Switzerland
Year: 2007
Mintage: 18,024,000
Metal: Copper-Nickel
Value: $0.25 in XF
