About #69 - 20 francs Type 2003
Switzerland. Swiss National Bank (Schweizerische Nationalbank). Eighth issue (1994-2014). Banknote identical to Pick # 68 but with micro-perforations under the number "20". Work by Jörg Zintzmeyer. Printer: Art Institute Orell Füssli AG, Zurich. Dimensions: 74 x 137 mm. Watermark: Arthur Honegger. Front and back: Multicolored print predominantly red. Front: composition in vertical with a portrait of the Swiss composer "Arthur Honegger (1892-1955)". In the top left, a vignette with the composer at work. At the bottom of the front, a raised square containing a point is intended to facilitate the recognition of the note by the blind. The SNB's translation texts are printed in vertical double-sided, in purple, red and blue and in four languages: Romansh, French, German and Italian. In addition to the traditional protection marks (watermark, security thread, double-sided mark, etc.), the banknote contains five new special security features arranged vertically on the left-hand side and in the center of the note and identified by eight letters (A to H). These security elements are essentially incorporated into the number "20": the magic number, the color number, the dancing number (in the center above the portrait), the chameleon number and the glittering number. Six issue dates and eight signature variants with The Chairman of the Board and A member of the Executive Board. Back: vertical composition with three trumpet pistons at the top, a steam locomotive wheel "Pacific 231" in the center, a piece of score and piano keys at the bottom. Both signatures are printed in red. The banknote number is repeated twice outside and inside the illustration and printed in black and blue. The first two digits preceding the serial number letter indicate the date of issue. Other Reference: TBB (The Banknote Book): B350.
