Nazi gold[edit]

The SNB is treated on the page "Nazi gold" but there was no mention of the controversy here. I added some of that information here under a section on "WWII controversy" as it is quite notable. The Bergier Commission study is an authoritative source on the subject (Independent Swiss Commission of Experts) and is cited. (talk) 20:12, 9 December 2009 (UTC)


I've added a template flagging this article as using language which reads like an advertisement. Please if you wish to remove that template, first read WP:NPOV. Consider:

  • "it creates an appropriate environment for economic growth"
  • "banknotes that meet high standards with respect to quality and security"
  • "The National Bank manages currency reserves [which] engender confidence in the Swiss franc"
  • "contributes to the stability of the financial system"

Any of these claims (currently made in the article) could be flagged with a "citation needed" tag. It's enough to make a casual reader wonder if the text was taken from promotional material authored by the bank...? (sdsds - talk) 07:46, 24 July 2015 (UTC)
