Graubünden coins online catalog with values

 

The canton of Graubünden (Grison) originated as a union of three leagues (communities). In the fourteenth century, several communities united to form the Union of the House of God (Gotteshausbund) to prevent the local bishop from transferring secular power to the Habsburgs. In the following century, the Union of the House of God merged with the Union of Ten Communities (Zehngerichtenbund), and the Upper or Graue Bund (Graue Bund), which was named after the color of the locals' common clothing. From
Graue Bund the name of the canton was derived from this.

In 1521, the Reformation led to the proclamation of religious freedom and the fall of the secular power of the bishop.

In the XVI-XVII centuries the politics of Graubünden was determined by the struggle of the Catholic and Reformed parties. In 1620 a civil war broke out.

At the end of XVIII century Switzerland was conquered by Napoleon. In 1798, Graubünden was annexed to the Helvetic Republic as the canton of Rétzia and subsequently served as a theater of operations for the Napoleonic Wars.

In 1803 Napoleon issued the Act of Mediation, which declared Switzerland a federal state, and Graubünden became one of the cantons, retaining its self-government.
On August 7, 1815, under a new treaty of alliance, Graubünden remained part of the Swiss Confederation.

Graubünden is the largest Swiss canton by area and the only one with three official languages - German, Retromanian and Italian.
