The Latin name Confoederatio Helvetica was neologized and introduced gradually after the formation of the federal state in 1848, harking back to the Napoleonic Helvetic Republic , appearing on coins from 1879, inscribed on the Federal Palace in 1902 and after 1948 used in the official seal.  (The ISO banking code , "CHF" for the Swiss franc , is taken from the state's Latin name). Helvetica is derived from the Helvetii , a Gaulish tribe living on the Swiss plateau before the Roman era.
Helvetia appears as a national personification of the Swiss confederacy in the 17th century with a 1672 play by Johann Caspar Weissenbach.
