1981 Mexico 50 Pesos Banknote

Paper Money-World | AC coin$

The Mexican Peso or Worldwide known as MXP has been the currency of the United Mexican States since 1863. It was reformed in 1992 and, since then has undergone several changes.

Mexican patriot, leader and reformist politician Benito Juárez, appears on this attractive bill's obverse issued by the Bank of Mexico on January 27th, 1981.

The reverse side brings an illustration of the Mexican Zapotec Art and architecture and linear cultural decorations and motifs.

The "Cincuenta Pesos" note shown here is part of a larger variety of denominations that have circulated in the republic's system. It represents a historical, yet conservative trend in paper-money printing for Mexico. Thanks for your comments, enjoy.

In my own words.
