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 48 million 1 Cordoba notes produced for this emission with serial numbers 00000001 - 48000000.

There is 3 varieties of this note thanks in part to a further executive decree # 20-MEIC on the 17th of November 1969, saying that this first 1000 banknotes from serial number 00000001 to 00001000 to feature the handwritten signature of the President Anastasio Somoza, the following 500 Banknotes from serial numbers 00001001 to 00001500 to feature the handwritten signature of the president of the Central Bank Dr. Roberto Incer Barquero. These are very rare and I have only seen a couple of the first signed examples which were interestingly in circulated condition.

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.
