Swiss National Bank Releases New 10-franc note

Third banknote in latest series showcases Switzerland’s organisational talent

snb_10_francsThe Swiss National Bank (SNB) will begin issuing the new 10-franc note on 18 October 2017. Following the 50-franc and 20-franc notes, it is the third of six denominations in the new banknote series to be released. The current eighth-series banknotes will remain legal tender until further notice.

The inspiration behind the new banknote series is ‘The many facets of Switzerland’. Each denomination depicts a typically Swiss characteristic, which is then illustrated graphically using a range of elements. The 10-franc note focuses on Switzerland’s organisational talent, as expressed in the key motif of time. Core design elements in the new series are the hand and the globe, which appear on every denomination.

As with the banknotes currently in circulation, the ninth series consists of six denominations; the colour scheme, too, remains the same. Accordingly, the main colour of the new 10-franc note is yellow. However, the format has been modified – the new banknotes are smaller and thus easier to handle. The innovative combination of complex security features and sophisticated design provides state-of-the-art anti-counterfeiting protection.

The next denomination, the 200-franc note, will be issued in autumn 2018. The last two denominations in the new series, the 1000-franc and 100-franc notes, are to be issued in the course of 2019. The SNB will announce the release dates well in advance.
