Owner's Description

These banknotes from 1941 - 1945 used the same design as the previous 1939 issued notes changing the effigy to feature 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.

For this particular 1941 issue there was a total of 3 million One Cordoba banknotes issued. They were authorised to be printed via an executive decree # 68 on the 2nd of December 1941 that authorised the printing of 6 million Cordobas worth of banknotes in denominations of 1, 2 & 100 Cordobas.

They were put into circulation through a couple of separate decrees. The first one was # 44 on the 27th of January 1943 authorising 1.1 million banknotes from serial # 000001 through to 1100000 to be placed into circulation. This was followed by # 49 on the 22nd of February 1943 for a further 50,000 notes to be placed into circulation from 1100001 through to 1150000. The final decree for the balance 1,850,000 notes was authorised through decree # 54 on the 18th of March 1943 from serial # 1150001 through to 3000000.

Because they started with 6 digits serial numbers this has created a variation of 6/7 digits for this year of issue.
