Owner's Description

These all new designed 100 Cordobas banknotes were introduced into circulation on the 1st of June 2009. There was a slightly updated design to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the currency the Cordoba (P208) which features a wider security thread, as well as the words 1912 - 2012 Centenario del Cordoba as a watermark on the top LH side.

The notes had a prefix A/1 whilst the replacement/star notes had the prefix A/R. For the second emission this was changed to Z/1 (P208*).

I am unsure on the actual emission for this series, but I estimate it to be around 30-40 million. I have seen notes up to 28*** and in the second emission I have seen notes from 49*** onwards.

The obverse of the banknote features the Ruben Dario Monument located in the "old downtown area" in Managua, near Lake Managua. The Statue was inaugurated on the 24th of September 1933 and over the years fell into disrepair. It was fully restored in 1998.

The reverse of the note features the famous Catedral de Leon (Leon Cathedral) It is the largest Cathedral in all of Central America, it is a World Heritage Listed site by UNESCO that was built between 1747 and 1817. In the crypts below the cathedral are the remains of several prominent Nicaraguans including Miguel Larreynaga and Ruben Dario among others. It was later to be featured on the 500 Cordoba notes.
