Owner's Description

These series F notes continued on the same design from the previous 2nd emission series E notes.

This particular note has a very low 2 digit serial number (40).

I believe there was a total of 13 million of these banknotes were produced. A number were later overprinted to produced the 50,000 cordoba note (P148).

On the obverse is Comandante Carlos Fonseca Amador he was one of the founders of the Frente Sandinista and was killed in 1976 3 years prior to the Sandinistas taking power in 1979. His portrait was used on the previous issue 50 Cordoba notes and the 10 Cordoba note from 1988.

On the reverse of the banknote is a scene depicting the day of liberation (dia de liberacion) on the 19th of July 1979 showing a large crowd of Sandinista sympathisers celebrating in front of the Cathedral in Managua. This same design would be used on the 1988 1000 Cordobas banknotes also.
