    On offer here is a rare 1957 Switzerland 100 Francs "St. Martin" Large Banknote (5th Series). This is a general circulation banknote that can be used in Switzerland from the periods of 1957-1980. Very rarely are such pieces available today, and these are well-sought after by collector communities internationally as rare antiquities. These are probably the most beautiful antique banknotes ever produced and seen in history. Country: Switzerland Value: 100 CHF (Swiss Francs) Dimensions: 191x105 mm Main Colour: Dark Blue Obverse: Head of Swiss Boy Reverse: St. Martin Designer: Pierre Gauchat Date of Issue: 14th Jun 1957 Date of Withdrawal: 1st May 1980 While Martin was a soldier in the Roman army and stationed in Gaul (modern-day France), he experienced a vision, which became the most-repeated story about his life. One day as he was approaching the gates of the city of Amiens, he met a scantily clad beggar. He impulsively cut his military cloak in half to share with the man. That night, Martin dreamed of Jesus wearing the half-cloak he had given away. He heard Jesus say to the angels: "Martin, who is still but a catechumen, clothed me with this robe." (Sulpicius, ch 2). In another version, when Martin woke, he found his cloak restored to wholeness. The dream confirmed Martin in his piety, and he was baptised at the age of 18. Fairly priced, it's authenticity is guaranteed for life! Open to offers. You are looking at an original quality listing by Emporium-Antiquities.com.
