Announcement regarding recall of banknotes from eighth series
The issuance of the ninth banknote series was concluded on 12 September 2019 with the release of the 100-franc note. The Swiss National Bank intends to communicate the statutory recall of the banknotes from the eighth series two months in advance in the first half of 2021.
Notes from the eighth series will remain legal tender until they are recalled and may continue to be used or exchanged without restriction.
After their recall by the SNB, the banknotes lose their status as legal tender. The notes from the eighth and sixth series can, for an unlimited period of time, be exchanged in person at the SNB counters in Berne and Zurich or at an SNB agency, or be sent to the SNB by post. Further information is available in the Instruction sheet for exchanging recalled banknotes.
