Swiss 10-francs note Banknote of the Year 2017

The Swiss National Bank (SNB) has won the Banknote of the Year Award 2017 for the second time in a row. The 10-francs note has been announced as the winner of the annual competition by the IBNS. 

"In the closest vote ever the Swiss 10 Franc polymer/hybrid note narrowly edged out runners-up from the Royal Bank of Scotland (£10 with female scientist)Canada ($10 with 4 politicians and regions)Fiji (unique $7 featuring their first Olympic gold medal and rugby “7’s” team)Norway (100 Kroner Viking long ship), and Djibouti (40 Franc whale shark). This is the fourth consecutive hybrid / polymer note to win the coveted IBNS Bank Note of the Year Award.

The Switzerland 10 Franc note is part of the first new design the Swiss National Bank has released in 20 years.  Printed by Orell Fussli Security Printing Ltd. in Zurich, all notes from the new 9th series feature national experiences and abstract themes.  Incorporating the latest in technological security standards and using three layer substrate Durasafe®, this gorgeous yellow vertical banknote depicts human hands conducting an orchestra with a globe showing time zones and the punctual Swiss rail system."
