Switzerland has had its fair share of troubles and delays when it comes to its new banknote series. Which is really a shame because its new series is going to look spectacular (though maybe not as spectacular as the winning design).
But there seems to be glowing some light at the end of the tunnel under the Swiss alps. The Swiss National Bank has issued a press release stating that: "In April 2016, the Swiss National Bank (SNB) will begin issuing the new Swiss banknotes. The first denomination to be released will be the 50-franc note; the release of the 20-franc note is planned for the following year. The remaining banknotes will be issued subsequently at half-yearly or yearly intervals. The SNB will announce each new issue date well in advance. The issuing of the entire new series is scheduled to be completed by 2019."
