The 100 Swiss franc note front design represents the theme “Water – Humanitarian tradition”; a pair of overlay hands holding and providing water, followed by the globe depicting Switzerland in time slots; four hours earlier (Europe, Africa). The multi-colored background contains a water waves pattern.  The safety strip contains a Switzerland map which listed and shows the rivers flowing through the country. The reverse of the note illustrates an irrigation canal in which water flows along a vertical slope from the mountain glacier. The lettering of the note is presented in the German, French, and Italian languages. This note is part of the 2017 – 2018 series, and its color is blue and multicolor.

Before 1798, over 860 currencies circulated in various denominations and monetary systems in Switzerland. Most of these coins originated from the French livre tournois or the southern German gulden of the 17th century.

The new Swiss currencies emerged in the 18th century after the Swiss cantons did not keep up with the depreciation rate in France and Germany.

The Helvetic Republic introduced the franc in 1798, minted until 1803; this issue served as a model for the coins of several cantons during the Mediation period (1803-1814).

Despite the arrival of the first Swiss franc, the southern German kronenthaler became the most popular currency in the nineteenth century.

The first Federal Monetary Law, passed in 1850, established the franc as the monetary unit of Switzerland two years later.

In 1907, The Swiss National Bank assumed responsibility for issuing banknotes from the cantons and individual banks and introduced notes in 50, 100, 500, and 1000 francs, followed by 20 francs in 1911 and 5 francs in 1913.

The Federal Treasury issued notes in denominations of 5, 10, and 20 francs in 1914. 

That year, the State Loan Bank also printed 25 franc notes. The national bank stopped issuing 5 franc notes in 1952 but launched 10 franc notes in 1955.

In 1996, introduced the 200-franc note, while phased out the 500-franc note.

The Swiss National Bank has created eight series of banknotes.

In April 2021, the Swiss National Bank introduced the ninth series launched between 2016 and 2019. In May 2021, the banknotes lost their status as legal tender and were no longer valid for payments.
