The 50-franc note focuses on the wealth of experiences Switzerland has to offer – expressed by the wind, the note’s key motif.
In the course of the ninth banknote series the globe rotates the full 360° ... and Switzerland turns with it.

Obverse: The wind carries forth the seed of the dandelion, which is held playfully in the hand. The arrows on the globe show the direction of the winds that connect Switzerland with other regions and continents. The arrows also feature in the background on the front of the note.
Reverse: The wind, the note’s key motif, holds the paraglider aloft in the mountains. The mountain panorama highlights the wealth of experiences Switzerland has to offer. The mountain peaks and contour lines evoke Switzerland’s varied landscapes. Mountains also appear on the security strip, which shows the Alps and lists the names of the main four-thousand-metre peaks in the Swiss Alps, from A for Aletschhorn to Z for Zumsteinspitze.
  There are many other design elements on the note, all of which illustrate its theme of experiences and its key motif, the wind.

  The new banknotes meet Switzerland’s traditionally high security standards for its currency. They have numerous security features – some new, some tried and tested.
  All six denominations have the same security features. Using a range of technologies, they are incorporated into both the front and the back of the note’s innovative, three-layer substrate (Durasafe®).
  The new series offers a unique combination of complex security features and sophisticated design, making it difficult to counterfeit.

Watermark: Two watermarks – the Swiss flag and the globe – are incorporated into the note (position E). Hold the note up to the light: on the left, you can see the outline of the Swiss flag and, on the right, the globe.
See-through register: On both sides of the note, an incomplete Swiss cross is printed in the lower section. Hold the note up to the light: a complete Swiss cross appears in outline.
Microtext: On the front of the note (position B), inside the Swiss flag, you will find a piece of text written in the four national languages. Examine the Swiss flag with a magnifying glass: you can make out the text in microlettering. Some of the text is in dark letters on a light background and some in light-coloured letters on a dark background.
Ultraviolet globe: On the front of the note, top right, is a globe which only becomes visible under ultraviolet light. Examine the note under ultraviolet light: the globe will show up brightly, while the background remains dull in contrast.
Ultraviolet fibres: The paper on both sides of the note contains flecks which only become visible under ultraviolet light. Examine the note under ultraviolet light: all over the note you will see flecks light up in different colours.
