Does anyone know if swiss banks will accept the old notes?


Swap them for new notes or convert to CHF?


Thanks

I don't know but I can't see a reason why they wouldn't. They are still legal tender in the UK ...

I’ve been lumbered with expired UK notes before now and the ZKB accepted them and credited my account in CHF…

Maybe you’d have had more success if you’d spoken French or Greek?
