Mexico to issue commemorative 100-pesos banknote

The Banco de Mexico is reportedly planning to issue a new commemorative note of of 100-pesos to celebrate the Centennial of the Constitution. The date of issue is supposedly 7 February 2017 and the number of issued notes would be limited to 1,000,000 pieces. 

No confirmation of this news yet or pictures of the notes. I wonder if it would be a totally new note or a stamp on the existing 100-pesos notes. Mexico has already issued a commemorative 100-pesos note before in commemoration of the beginning of the Mexican revolution which had a totally new design.

Update 7-2-2017: here is the new issued note which looks very nice I think. 

The main motive on the front is the solemn act in which Venustiano Carranza, Mexico’s president at the time, next to the chairman of Congress at the time, Luis Manuel Rojas, is sworn in before the Constituent Assembly after amending the Constitution. The back shows congressmen of the Constituent Assembly swearing to observe and enforce the Mexican Constitution.
