The transition to a new banknote series
The eighth banknote series will gradually be replaced by the ninth in a process scheduled to take place between 2016 and 2019. The first denomination in the new series – the 50-franc note – has been in circulation since April 2016. The 20-franc and 10-franc notes followed in May and October 2017. The 200-franc note will be released on 22 August 2018, and the two remaining denominations, the 1000-franc and 100-franc notes, will be issued in 2019. The SNB will announce each new date well in advance. All notes from the eighth banknote series will remain valid until further notice.
