The Swiss Franc is the currency and legal tender of Switzerland; it is also legal tender in the Italian exclave Campione d'Italia. The Swiss franc is the only version of the franc still issued in Europe. The ISO (International Organization for Standardization) code of the currency used by banks and financial institutions is CHF, although "Fr." is used by mainly businesses and advertisers. The currency is commonly referred to by foreign-exchange traders as "Swissie".
In 1907, the Swiss National Bank took over the issuance of banknotes. Denominations range from 5 to 1000 francs. All Swiss Franc notes have the same height (74mm), while the widths increase with the value of then note. All banknotes are quadrilingual, displaying all information in the four national languages.
The Swiss Franc is regarded as a reserve currency around the world and is currently ranked after the US Dollar, the Euro, the Japanese Yen and the Pound Sterling.

The denominations available are 10,20,50,100,200 and 1000 notes. Please note we do not supply swiss franc coins. You can select small, mixed or large denominations where we will do our best to match you requirements.
If you are visiting Switzerland, then select the denominations of travel money that will match your requirements. Feedback from our members is that in Switzerland, the majority of shops will accept most denominations with the greatest difficulty being the 1000 note for obvious reasons. If however, you are making a large purchase, for example, if you are paying for accommodation and you would rather take cash, then the 1000 swiss franc notes should be suitable but always check before buying your travel money.
It really depends on where you are travelling. If you end up in a touristic location in Geneva or Zurich for example, always make sure that you compare the exchange rates on offer. Many exchanges still charge commission on currency whilst hiding their markup within the exchange rate. It can be cheaper to buy online before you travel as all prices are clearly displayed in a competitive environment
