Swiss Currency

The Swiss National Bank held a contest to redesign its curency notes for 2010 and the winning entries look more like lotto cards than currency. The content of the designs is baffling, too, ESPECIALLY the note with a rendering of the AIDS virus on it. (Because nothing says, “money” quite like a deadly virus.) The currency currently in circulation is quite nice; i’d say the proposed redesign isn’t very representative of a country known for its design sensibilities.
