We have successfully completed a secret project which began earlier this summer.

 
What is it?

The 5th series 1000 Swiss Franc note was produced between 1956 to 1978 and was one of the most valuable notes on earth. In 2000, its value was nullified by the Swiss National Bank (SNB). A bank in a country renowned for being historically one of the most stable.
 
This banknote is famous for its striking imagery of La Danse macabre(i.e. the dance of death). Originally, its design suggested a universal and inevitable part of life- all things must end.
 
This note has been amended to change the meaning of its image. It attempts to highlight the fragility of centralised fiat based currency and instead suggests the usage of crypto currency to mitigate against such devaluations.

 
Is the note genuine?
 
Yes. Original notes from the 1960’s and 1970’s were sourced in Switzerland and prepared for printing on. The original underlying design was created by Pierre Gauchat and printed by De La Rue in London, England.
 
 
How many exist?
 
10 official notes, with one error. Serial numbers range from A01 to A10.
 
9 of 10 notes have been already sold to private buyers from this forum to finance this precarious project.
 
A01 will be listed at auction.

 
Are the official notes slabbed?
 
Yes, all notes have been slabbed. We’d like to thank Owlcatz for aiding us in not only sourcing but designing the slabs.





 
 
Specifications:
 
1000 Swiss Franc 5th Series
 
125x228 mm
 
Devalued on 1 May 2000

Were people allowed to turn their notes in for other valid currency? or anyone who was holding these just lost their money?

The notes went out of use in 1980 and were made completely worthless in 2000.

While 20 years may seem like a generous amount of time, many people lost a lot of money.

Grandparents passed away with large amounts of their successors inheritance hidden in mattresses. Others lost millions due to the fact that they were stored in safe deposit boxes and safes.

20 years seems to be a good amount of time for people to get them cashed out, seems reasonable to me I guess, but still, that's a lot of money into the wind. Tongue

True, but we are talking about a pretty good case scenario here.

There are many places where currency gets invalidated practically overnight. India is one example.

When my father passed I found gold Krugs he hid in jacket pockets in 1979.  Stored value should be just that, stored value.  Fuck any bank, Central Bank or private, that is willing to invalidated their own previously issued notes.  This is exactly why the blockchain has value, trust-less proof of ownership forever.

Polymerbit's note here perfectly demonstrates this, top job Poly Team!
