All SNB banknote series
Banknotes in circulation
Ninth banknote series (2016)
These banknotes will enter circulation in a phased process which started in 2016. The 50-franc note was issued first, in April 2016, followed by the 20-franc note, in 17 May 2017. The 10-franc note was released on 18 October 2017. The new notes are legal tender.
Eighth banknote series (1995)
These banknotes were put into circulation between 1995 and 1998 and remain legal tender until further notice.
Reserve series (1984–1995)
Seventh banknote series (1984)
Recalled, but still exchangeable banknotes
These banknotes were recalled as of 1 May 2000 and are thus no longer legal tender. They can still be exchanged at the Swiss National Bank, however, at full face value for 20 years from the date of recall, i.e. until 30 April 2020.

Sixth banknote series (1976)
Withdrawn and invalid banknotes
Withdrawn and invalid banknotes are no longer legal tender. They may, however, have some collector’s value. The price depends on supply and demand and on what state the notes are in. In contrast to numismatists, antique dealers and commercial banks with a numismatics department, the Swiss National Bank does not deal in withdrawn and invalid banknotes.
