About #78 - 200 francs type 2016
Switzerland. Swiss National Bank (Schweizerische Nationalbank). Ninth issue (2015-20xx) whose theme is: Switzerland with many facets. The banknote is dated 2016 but is only issued from 22-08-2018. This is the fourth 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 151 mm. Watermark: The Swiss flag and a globe. Front and back: Multicolored print predominantly brown. The main themes of the post are the subject matter and the scientific vocation. On the front, the fingers of the hand represent the three axes of coordinates with in the background, an illustration of the big bang. On the globe, we distinguish the distribution of land masses. The value in figures "200" is printed in brown 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 green 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 representation of a collision of particles to illustrate the material. Both signatures are printed in brown. The serial number of the note is repeated twice inside the illustration and printed in brown 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): B359.
