About #71 - 50 francs Type 2004
Switzerland. Swiss National Bank (Schweizerische Nationalbank). Eighth issue (1994-2014). Banknote identical to Pick # 70 but with micro-perforations under the number "50". Work by Jörg Zintzmeyer. Printer: Art Institute Orell Füssli AG, Zurich. Dimensions: 74 x 148 mm. Watermark: Sophie Taeuber-Arp. Front and back: Multicolored print predominantly olive green. Recto: composition in vertical with a portrait of the woman painter, artist of the decorative art and sculptor "Sophie Taeuber-Arp (1889-1943)", made from vintage photos. Top left, a photo showing the artist at work. At the bottom of the front, a raised triangle 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, green 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 features are essentially embedded in the "50" number value: the magic number, the color number, the dancing number (in the center above the portrait), the chameleon number and the glittering number. Four issue dates and eight signature variants with The Chairman of the Board and A member of the Executive Board. Back: composition in vertical with a "Rectangular Relief", "Head Dada", composition "Aubette" and open lines. Both signatures are printed in black and purple. The banknote number is repeated twice outside and inside the illustration and printed in black and red. The first two digits preceding the serial number letter indicate the date of issue. Other Reference: TBB (The Banknote Book): B351.
