Owner's Description

These banknotes from 1949 - 1951 used the same design as the previous 1941-45 issued notes (P90) with the main difference being the text for the Series being larger/bolder and in Red ink. The effigy is of Lillian Somoza the daughter of the then dictator president Anastasio Somoza. She featured on the 1 Cordoba notes from 1941 - 1960. The reverse shows the National Coat of Arms as per the previous issues.

I couldn't find any decrees however the information from the ABNC archives shows that 3 million banknotes were produced in February 1949, and two lots produced for the 1951 issue. The first for 5 million and then a following 2 million in 1953.
