Recently, the Swiss National Bank (SNB) unveiled the new 100 franc banknote.

The note’s design is inspired by Switzerland’s tradition of humanitarianism, represented on the note by water.

The note remains blue but is much smaller than the existing one, making it easier to fit into wallets.

The note is the last one in Switzerland’s ninth series of notes to be updated. Updating the series began in April 2016 with the introduction of a new 50 franc note.

The series’ theme, which was designed by Manuela Pfrunder, is the “Many facets of Switzerland”

With 125 million notes in circulation, the 100 franc note is Switzerland’s most popular. The 20 (86 million), 10 (76 million) and 50 (58 million) trail far behind the 100, according to RTS.

The new note will go into circulation on 12 September 2019. The design of the new note can be seen here on the RTS website.
