According to the Swiss National Bank, (SNB) there are 48 million 1000 franc notes in circulation worth 48 billion swiss francs.

There are approximately 2 million families (of 4) living in Switzerland.

That means that on average each family has around 24’000 francs lying around the house.

The banks are going to be kept pretty busy changing all those notes.

No, wait, I forgot. This is Switzerland. There must be at least two million banks here.
In circulation is not lying around.

All the second-hand car dealers I know only deal in cash. To mention just one group of people who keep those 1000-frank notes well exercised.

Re: New 1000 CHF Banknote

I just checked my piggy bank. Looks like I have about 24’000 in big notes. Looks like I am Mr. Average.

What have you got against le Corbusier?
He is undisputed king of ugliness, just read his Wiki page to get yourself attuned to his awful influence & post war utilitarian architecture that he has promoted.

I am glad he got removed from 10Fr banknote and replaced with a dark tunnel.

Anyone who is thinking that they will be safe in stashing a pile of these new 1000 franc notes away in their safety deposit box for the next 20 years may find that things change more rapidly than they think.

Yes, bank notes in Switzerland only get changed once every 20 years. So in theory, you might be good for 20 years. However, the world is changing so rapidly, it is quite likely that we will only be dealing with electronic money 20 years from now. It wouldn’t surprise me if we are already on electronic money in just five years.

I think the next currency reset will not only make old currencies obsolete, like DM, Lira or Pesetas are now, but the new dollar will be fully digital. Expect the same from every other country.
UK already experiencing this.
