New CHF 100 note released
The Swiss National Bank has released the details of the new 100 franc note. It will go into circulation later this month.
The new note is still blue – as it has been for many years – but the new range of notes breaks with tradition and does not feature notable Swiss personalities.
The bank says this new note focuses on Switzerland’s humanitarian tradition – expressed by water.
Similar to the rest of the series, which started to appear in 2016, the note is packed with high tech security features which are said to make the notes virtually unforgeable.
The old notes remain legal tender for the time being. But the bank says they could be withdrawn at a later date, but they will always remain changeable.
