Banknotes of Swiss Franc (CHF)
The Swiss franc is the only version of the franc still issued in Europe. The smaller denomination, a hundredth of a franc, is a Rappen (Rp.) in German, centime (c.) in French, centesimo (ct.) in Italian, and rap (rp.) in Romansh. The ISO code of the currency used by banks and financial institutions is CHF, although “Fr.” is used by most businesses and advertisers; some use SFr.; the Latinate “CHF” denotes Confoederatio Helvetica franc, because Latin is used as the neutral language representing the country given its tetralingual populace. As of December 2005, the total value of released Swiss coins and banknotes was 43,834.99 million Swiss francs.
All banknotes are quadrilingual, displaying all information in the four national languages. The banknotes depicting a Germanophone display German and Romansch on the same side as his picture, whereas banknotes depicting a Francophone or an Italophone display French and Italian on the same side as his picture.

The economy of Switzerland
The economy of Switzerland is one of the world’s most stable economies. Its policy of long-term monetary security and bank secrecy has made Switzerland a safe haven for investors, creating an economy that is increasingly dependent on a steady tide of foreign investment. Because of the country’s small size and high labour specialisation, industry and trade are the keys to Switzerland’s economic livelihood. Switzerland has achieved one of the highest per capita incomes in the world with low unemployment rates and a low budget deficit. The service sector has also come to play a significant economic role.
Institutional membership of Switzerland
Switzerland is a member of a number of international economic organizations, including the United Nations, the World Trade Organization, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.
