Bank Note of the Year 2016

10 Jun 2021  Thu

The Swiss National Bank received its prestigious award of the “Bank Note of the Year Award” for 2016. The Switzerland 50 Franc note is the first new design that the Swiss National Bank has released in 20 years.

Printed by Orell Fussli Security Printing Ltd, this note is from the new 9th series which features the wind and national experiences. It incorporates the latest technological security standards, future notes will depict time, light, water, matter, and language.

Using three-layer substrate Durasafe technologies, the bright green vertical banknote depicts dandelion seeds, a paraglider aloft in the mountains, and a strikingly playful human hand. Slightly smaller than U.S. banknotes, this is the first hybrid note to win the coveted IBNS Banknote award. Image Courtesy: banknotenews.com
