Mexico issues new 1000-pesos banknote

The Banco de México has also issued a new 1,000-pesos banknote according to this press release. The new note measures 153x65 mm and shows the historical process of the Mexican Revolution. This is represented with the figures of President Francisco I. Madero, Hermila Galindo and Carmen Serdán, driving forces of the revolutionary ideals of democracy, equality and justice. These figures are accompanied by an image of a locomotive, the revolutionaries’ main means of transportation.

The back of the note shows the rainforest ecosystem represented with the jaguar and the ceiba and zapote trees, in the Ancient Mayan City and protected tropical forests of Calakmul, in the state of Campeche. Calakmul has been recognized as a natural and cultural world heritage site by UNESCO.
