About #76 - 20 francs Type 2015
Switzerland. Swiss National Bank (Schweizerische Nationalbank). Ninth issue (2015-20xx) whose theme is: Switzerland with many facets. The banknote is dated 2015 but is only issued from 17-05-2017. This is the second 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 130 mm. Watermark: The Swiss flag and a globe. Front and back: Multicolored print predominantly red. The main themes of the note are light and creativity. The light is materialized on the front by a hand holding a prism and constellations on the globe. Both themes are illustrated on the back by the butterfly and a view of the Locarno Film Festival. The value in figures "20" is printed in red 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 blue-green horizontal 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, both signatures are printed in purple and red. 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): B356.
