Switzerland unveiled a new 10 Franc note of the ninth banknote series. The new note is scheduled for introduction on October 18, 2017.
The 10 Francs note is the 3rd note of the new series. 20 and 50 Francs notes were issued earlier.
The designs of the remaining denominations (100, 200 and 1000 Francs) have not yet been determined.
In the ninth banknote series the Swiss National Bank is breaking new ground on the design front – it is moving away from the depiction of well-known personalities altogether. Each note in the new series depicts a typically Swiss characteristic, which is then illustrated graphically using a key motif. Each characteristic is communicated via an action, a Swiss location and various graphic elements. The inspiration behind the new banknote series is ‘The many facets of Switzerland’.
