The transition to a new banknote series
The eighth banknote series will gradually be replaced by the ninth in a process scheduled to take place between 2016 and 2019. The first denomination in the new series – the 50-franc note – has been in circulation since April 2016. The 20-franc and 10-franc notes followed in May and October 2017, and the 200-franc note in August 2018. The 1000-franc note was released on 13 March 2019. The last denomination, the 100-franc note, will be issued on 12 September 2019. All notes from the eighth banknote series will remain valid until further notice.
