Switzerland announces new 1,000-francs note

The Swiss National Bank (SNB) has announced it will start to issue its new 1,000-francs banknote from 13 March 2019. From the press release:

"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.

As with the banknotes currently in circulation, the ninth series consists of six denominations; the colour scheme, too, remains the same. Accordingly, the main colour of the new 1000- franc note is purple. However, the format has been modified – the new notes are smaller and thus easier to handle. The innovative combination of complex security features and sophisticated design provides state-of-the-art anti-counterfeiting protection."

Shall we just send the Banknote of the Year Award 2019 already?

I already did. It instantly won me over that I could not pass up on nominating this little beauty while the voting for the last year was under way.
