Have been going through some stuff I pulled put of storage and came across the following that I picked up when I first travelled to Switzerland

Information as to Pick No, Value etc would be very much appreciated

It could be one of the new Swiss notes of the 2012 series. So as such it does not yet have a Pick no. and value would be current exchange rate.

thanks thai-vic but the note was picked up in 1990 so is definitely not one of the 2012 issue

Ah right. That's what threw me. The catalog has them listed but no pics!

So it's #60 1983. Listed as the 1983-85 Reserve Issue but no values? How strange. You might try find one on eBay.

No, it's not from the 1983 issue, it's a "sixth series" 1979 issue. The "seventh series" 1983 issue was printed, but never issued - it was held "in reserve" in case a sudden major banknote replacement was required (by, for example, a sudden spate of counterfeiting). The entire print run of the seventh series was destroyed.

The current Swiss note series is the "eighth series", introduced gradually in the mid-1990s.

Switzerland has a twenty-year, two-stage banknote withdrawal system. For twenty years after a note design is formally withdrawn and replaced, the notes are no longer legal tender, but they can still be exchanged at the Swiss National Bank for full face value. After the twenty-year deadline expires, the notes can no longer be exchanged and retain collector value only. The expiry date of your note is 30th April 2020.
Don't say "infinitely" when you mean "very"; otherwise, you'll have no word left when you want to talk about something really infinite. - C. S. Lewis
