Below is my specimen of, I feel, one of Mexico's most beautiful Bank notes. This would be a 1961 specimen of a 5 Peso note. This note is commonly called the gypsy note. This particular note is  dated 8 November, 1961.. Romania or, Romani, "Gypsies " , or "gitanos",  began showing up in Mexico, in significant numbers, in the mid 19th century. The Obverse or front side of this note shows a beautiful Gypsy woman. The reverse shows the statue  of another beautiful woman that is depicted on the modern Libertad. Thanks for looking. I look forward to your comments. Please note: American Bank Notes Company printed this series!

That is beautiful. I love all the colors too. The history makes it even more beautiful. Might those be coins in the necklace around the lovely gypsy woman's neck?
