About :#79 - 100 francs Type 2017

Switzerland. Swiss National Bank (Schweizerische Nationalbank). Ninth issue (2015-20xx) whose theme is: Switzerland with many facets. The banknote is dated 2017 but is only issued from 12-09-2019. This is the sixth and final note issued in the order of six denominations of the new series of banknotes. Work by Manuela Pfrunder. Printer: Art Institute Orell Füssli AG, Zurich. Dimensions: 70 x 144 mm. Watermark: The Swiss flag and a globe. Front and back: Multicolored print predominantly blue. The main themes of the note are water and the humanitarian tradition. On the front, two hands draw water and the globe is surrounded by isobars. The numerical value "100" is printed in blue on the left at the bottom of the front and on the top left on the back. The SNB's translation texts are printed in yellow on the front and vertical on the back and in four languages: Romansh, French, German and Italian. The banknote contains five new special security features: by tilting the bill, a golden bow moves across the globe and red and green numbers appear on four lines in the reflective strip below the globe. Looking at the note in the light, a triangle and the security thread are perfectly visible, as well as the Swiss cross at the top left which is transformed into a Swiss flag. Finally, by passing the finger on the value and the texts of the SNB, one can feel a slight relief. One issue date and three variants of signatures with the Chairman of the Board and a member of the Executive Board. On the reverse, a view of the Bisse d'Ayent and the passage of Torrent-Croix on the cliff side carries water from glaciers to crop fields and recalls the challenge of water supply. Both signatures are printed in cyan and dark blue. The serial number of the note is repeated twice inside the illustration and printed in blue and black. The first two digits preceding the serial number letter indicate the date of issue. No known specimen for the Type. Other Reference: TBB (The Banknote Book): B358.
