This is the first of the 9th series banknotes. Each denomination of this series depicts a typically Swiss characteristic, which is then illustrated graphically using a range of elements. The 50-franc note focuses on the wealth of experiences Switzerland has to offer expressed by the wind, the note's key motif. Core design elements in the new series are the hand and the globe, which appear on every denomination.
