Historical background


SWITZERLAND - REPUBLIC OF GENEVA

(1541-1789)

Gegenna became Geneva on December 4, 1535. On November 24, 1535, the Council of Two Hundred decided to have coins minted in the name of the Republic of Geneva; the first sols de billon were minted in 1536. The Republic of Geneva was proclaimed on May 21, 1536 and the reformed religion became the state religion. Education becomes compulsory and free.
