Owner's Description

The new 500 & 1000 Cordoba Polymer 2019 notes entered into circulation on the 8th of July 2019. The design carries on from the previous paper issue with new polymer security measures. This is the first time the 1000 Cordoba banknote has been issued in polymer.

There is the regular issue with the A prefix and the Replacement/Star Notes feature an R prefix.

This particular note is a matching numbers to the 500 Cordoba Polymer note, it is also a Binary note that was given the First Releases designation by PMG for being received within 30 days of issue.

Interestingly the 1000 Cordobas note uses the same scenes from the 2007 10 Cordoba note but shown on opposite sides of the note.

The obverse of the banknote features Hacienda San Jacinto a farm located in the municipality of Tipitapa about 30 mins away from the capital of Managua. This farm was home to the battle of San Jacinto which took place on the 14th of September 1856. This scene was first depicted on the Series C 10 Cordobas banknote from 1972. Later it was featured on both the series A & B 2002 & 2006 500 Cordobas banknotes. The same Hacienda was also featured on the short lived emergency issue notes of 1989-90 on the 50,000 Cordobas and 10 million Cordobas with a slightly different design.

The reverse of the banknotes feature the Fortress of the Immaculate Conception (Castillo Inmaculada Concepcion). This fortress is a World Heritage listed site that was originally constructed in 1675 along the banks of the San Juan River in El Castillo in Southern Nicaragua. The purpose of this fort was to protect the city of Granada from Pirate attacks. A scene depicting the Fortress is also present on the reverse of the 50 Cordobas banknotes from series A & B from 2002 & 2006.
