Communication is precious!
What is so special about the new 1,000 note, which will come into circulation on 13 March 2019? Like the other notes in the new banknote series, it has shrunk in comparison to its predecessors and no longer features portraits of brilliant minds. Instead, it puts Switzerland in the best light as far as communication is concerned. The central element is the representation of language. But one thing has remained the same: violet shades continue to dominate as before.
“Ants” at ATMs
The new “ants” are available not only at bank counters, but also at more and more ATMs. The nickname comes from the penultimate 1,000-franc notes issued by the Swiss National Bank in 1978: they represented the psychiatrist, neurologist and insect expert Auguste Forel. With three different ants on the bank to match.
Is our new banknote series finally complete? No, the banknote that is still missing is the one that is the most widespread and most likely to end up in the restaurant till – the 100-franc note. It will also be issued later this year. And it may even fall into your hands before the new 1,000-franc note.
