Swiss National Bank, second issue

This second series will have an exceptionally long life, since the notes will only be replaced in the middle of the 20th century. The 5 francs, originally intended to replace the 5 francs silver coin, will circulate even longer ... until 1980! This series is composed of eight values: 5, 10, 20, 40, 50, 100, 500 and 1000 francs. Two banknotes will not be put into circulation and kept in reserve: the 10 francs Type 1921 (Ref. Pick: # 31 or TBB: # B306) and the 40 francs Type 1914(Ref. Pick: # 13 or TBB: # B310).
