Owner's Description

The Series B notes of 1968 would continue the design from the previous emission Series A notes from 1962. They were authorised under Executive Decree # 35-AL on the 25th of May 1968 with a total of 78.8 million notes with a face value of C$512 million Cordobas printed by Thomas de La Rue & co.

There was a total of 11.5 million 10 Cordoba notes produced for this emission with serial numbers 00000001 - 11500000. This particular note is a specimen.

The front of the banknotes feature Miguel Larreynaga who was a Nicaraguan lawyer and writer but more well known for his part in Central America gaining independence from Spain. He travelled together with a group to Spain to ask the Spanish Monarchy for independence in 1818. And he was present at the drafting and signing of the Central American Independence Act celebrated in Guatemala City on the 15th of September 1821. Miguel also featured on previous 10 Cordoba banknotes from 1953 on wards. He was replaced by Andres Castro on subsequent issues. And returned to the 10 Cordoba banknote from 1990 - 2002.

The rear of the note shows Francisco Hernandez de Cordoba, the Nicaraguan currency's namesake. He was a Spanish explorer and the founder of the cities of Leon and Granada in Nicaragua.
