Demand for 1,000-Franc Notes at All-Time January High: Chart

Some 44.7 million 1,000-franc notes were in circulation in January, according to Swiss National Bank data published on Monday. That’s the highest reading for the start of the year since at least 2000 and marks just a 1 percent decrease from December, when there typically is heightened demand for Switzerland’s most valuable banknote. The SNB has said it won’t drop the bill, even as questions have arisen about the longevity of the 500-euro note in the neighboring euro area.
