New range of swiss banknotes – 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 and 1000 swiss francs

The Swiss National Bank announced that it would unveil the new 200 franc banknote on August 22th 2018 . This note will be the fourth note to be issued in the 9th Swiss banknotes Series. It is the work of the Swiss artist Manuela PFUNDER. This new banknotes range is dedicated to Switzerland’s scientific vocation and the main graphic element will be the material. The Swiss central bank is more than six years late for introduction of this last series of banknotes into circulation. It was first delayed by a theft of 1,000 franc notes from the ORELL FUSSLI printer’s plant. Secondly, some security features of the new range of banknotes proved to be more complex to achieve than expected in a mass production.

The transition from the eighth to the ninth series of banknotes started in 2016 and will continue stage by stage until the end of 2019. The first of the new series, the 50 franc note has been put into circulation in April 2016, the 20 francs banknote from May 17th 2017 and the 10 francs banknote from  October 18th 2017. The next banknote, the 200-franc note, will be put into circulation in autumn 2018. The two remaining denominations in the new series, the CHF 1000 and CHF 100 banknotes, will follow in 2019. All denominations are expected to be put into circulation before the end of 2019. The eighth series of banknotes remain valid until further notice.

 

A new range of highly secure banknotes

The bank decided to develop the Durasafe substrate in cooperation with the Grisons-based Landqart. It is a three-layer substrate, consisting of two layers of paper made from cotton and reinforced in the centre by a polymer core. The security elements are numerous.  The first possible test is the globe, located on the front of the banknote. If the banknote is tilted from left to right, a golden bow moves across the globe. If you hold the note in front of you and lean it back, the globe changes of colour.

A second security feature is the safety strip placed in the lower half. If the banknote is tilted from left to right, red and green numbers appear on four lines and move in opposite directions. Production costs amount is about 40 cents per note, which represents an additional cost of some 10 cents regarding the old range.
