Owner's Description

The 2006 500 Cordobas banknote continues the same design from the previous 2002 series. This time with updated signatures and the prefix is now B from the previous A.

These particular banknotes are one of my favourites and were one of the reasons I started collecting Nicaragua in the first place, I was living in Nicaragua during this period when they were circulating and I always made sure I had a few of these in my wallet! I loved the vivid reddish pink colours with the hologram security thread running down the RH side.

The obverse of the banknote features Jose Dolores Estrada a Nicaraguan National Hero that was in charge of an army that helped defeat the filibuster army of William Walker in the battle at San Jacinto Hacienda (featured on the reverse of the note) in 1856. He was previously featured on the 100 Cordobas banknotes from 1962 through to 1984. The San Jacinto Haciendo was later featured on the obverse of the new 1000 Cordobas banknotes from 2017 onwards.
