Swiss Confederation, 100 Franks 1980, 8th banknote series, in circulation since 1995

The Swiss treat their money with care: the 100-franc note, although the most frequently used note in Switzerland, has a four-year durability.

Internationally seen, this is a remarkable lifespan: in Ireland, for instance, paper money has to be withdrawn from circulation after about four weeks because it is torn, soaked or crumpled.
