The Swiss National Bank (SNB) will begin issuing the new 1000-franc note on 13 March 2019. Following the 50, 20, 10 and 200-franc notes, this is the fifth of six denominations in the new banknote series to be released. The current eighth-series banknotes remain legal tender until further notice.

The inspiration behind the new banknote series is ‘The many facets of Switzerland’. Each denomination depicts a typically Swiss characteristic, which is then illustrated graphically using a range of elements. The 1000-franc note focuses on Switzerland’s communicative flair, as expressed by language, the note’s key motif. Core design elements are the hand and the globe, which appear on every denomination in the new series.

A: Like this https://www.snb.ch/en/iabout/cash/se...sign_principle

Q: How often does the SNB introduce a new banknote series to the public?

A: The last one will be the 100 note which is the most common one. It will be presented on 3 September 2019 and enter circulation on 12 September 2019. This will conclude the release of the ninth banknote series.

Q: What will the other notes feature and what color will they have?
A: The color scheme will stay as is. The main features can be seen here https://www.snb.ch/en/iabout/cash/se...esign_elements

Q: The new notes are ugly as hell!
A: This is not a question.

Alas! I was going to get in touch with Mrs. Escobar to see if she wants to reduce her stash by 100 fold... USD would have been so 2018!

Either: How does the new CHF 1000 note look?
Or: What does the new CHF 1000 note look like?

My daughter makes that error frequently. Even then the first sounds more like a request for a value judgement rather than information.

Will this finally fix the shortage of 1000.- banknotes in ATMs ?

Thanks. It looks like it should be "What does it look like" as the question ask about a description of the look and not a judgment.

Re: New 1000 CHF Banknote

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.

Re: New 1000 CHF Banknote

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.

No rush to change them, Banks will accept them for a very long time & are used to wads of the previous series turning up.
