Owner's Description

For the 1984 Series F the 1000 Cordobas banknotes they were authorised under two different Central Bank resolutions the first on the 2nd of July 1984 and another one of the 19th of November 1984. There is no break down for each denomination just a global amount across all denominations with a total face value is listed in the Flores book. The amounts are 45.5 million banknotes with a face value of 8.9 billion cordobas and the following order is for 7.85 million banknotes with what I believe to be a typo of 7.85 billion in face value (as this would equate to only 1000 cordobas banknotes). After checking the serial numbers and running some calculations I believe that there was approximately 4.5 million of the 1000 Cordobas banknotes printed.

They have continued the design from the previous 1979 Series E banknotes. The banknotes pay homage to revolutionary leader Augusto César Sandino, the rebellious guerrilla leader that fought against the United States involvement and military presence in Nicaragua. He was later executed at the hands of the national guard under orders of General Anastasio Somoza who would later become president and dictator of Nicaragua.

The Sandinistas later adpoted his name for their political party and his famous wide brimmed hat and portrait are widely used in their political propaganda and was also featured on the reverse of the coins issued during the 1980s whilst the Sandinistas were in power.

On the reverse of the banknote is Sandino's modest childhood home.

This particular banknote is a very low double digit serial number which is also a matching numbers serial with the Series G (P145a).
