Owner's Description

These 1979 Series E banknotes formed part of the first emissions for the newly formed revolutionary Sandinista Government.

There was a total of 30 million 20 Cordoba banknotes that were authorised by 2 decrees 454 on the 21st of June 1980 for 10 million and 503 on the 30th of August 1980 for a further 20 million.

This particularly banknote given the high serial number I would believe have been leftover banknotes that would have been stored in the Central Bank vaults.

The obverse of the banknote features Commander German Pomares Ordoñez a revolutionary and considered a national hero. He was one of the founders of the Frente Sandinista (FSLN), he fought against the ruling Somoza government and was killed only months before the Sandinistas claimed victory. The reverse of the banknote features soldiers marching from the Militia of Popular Sandinistas.
