New banknotes project
Project to be pursued further
Competition for artistic design of new banknote series
As part of the planning process for the development of a new banknote series, a competition for the artistic design of the new banknote series was launched at the beginning of 2005. Twelve artists were invited to present their designs for all six denominations on the theme 'Switzerland open to the world'. The jury met in November 2005 to evaluate the submissions and to decide on the winning designs. These were presented at a news conference in Berne on 23 November 2005. You can view them by clicking on the names of the individual designers.
Manuela Pfrunder was commissioned to design the new series of banknotes.
Unfortunately, one of the participants had to withdraw from the competition.
