The new 10-franc note is the most beautiful bank note in the world for 2017
The International Bank Note Society (IBNS) has selected the yellow 10-franc note as the world’s most beautiful bank note for 2017. The new 10-franc note edged out 169 other nominees. According to the IBNS, the decision was "the closest vote ever". The runners-up were the Scottish 10-pound note, followed by the Canadian 10-dollar bill. It is not the first time that the Swiss National Bank has won. In 2016, the 50-franc bank note was declared the world’s loveliest.
