Reproduction in printed media:
Reproductions for which we do not see any risk of confusion with genuine banknotes, are defined in our document “Instruction sheet”.
For print media, we supply on loan either digital images of our banknotes (150 dpi) or physical banknotes (both include the word “SPECIMEN” printed diagonally across the banknote). These will be sent only if the reason for wanting to reproduce banknotes is declared and the terms of the
“contract” accepted (by sending back the signed letter containing the conditions). Moreover, the passing of these images or banknotes to third parties is strictly prohibited, and all materials provided must be returned to the Swiss National Bank. The users will be responsible for limiting access to these materials.
All negatives, plates, positives, digitised storage media, graphics files, magnetic media, optical storage devices and other devices used in the making of the illustration that contain complete or partial images of the illustration must be destroyed, deleted or erased after their final use.
