About #80 - 1000 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 13-03-2019. This is the fifth 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 158 mm. Watermark: The Swiss flag and a globe. Front and back: Multicolored purple print. The main themes of the note are speech and the taste of communication. On the front, a handshake evokes human communication and on the surface of the globe we can see phonetic signs. The value in figures "1000" is printed in purple 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 back, a view of the Parliament, space of public debates and an open network reminiscent of the taste of communication cultivated in Switzerland. Both signatures are printed in purple. The serial number of the note is repeated twice inside the illustration and printed in purple 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): B360.
