Ladies and gentlemen

I am very pleased to welcome you to our presentation of the new 100-franc note, the last denomination of the ninth banknote series to be issued. To mark the final milestone in this challenging project, as well as inviting the media we also have some guests here who were heavily involved in developing and producing the new banknote series. It gives me great pleasure to welcome representatives from our suppliers Orell Füssli, Landqart, Sicpa and Kurz.

I am going to start by unveiling the hotly anticipated 100-franc note, before showing you the full series, with all six denominations together for the first time.
