Owner's Description

These notes were issued as inflation started to become rampant towards the end of the 1980s. Other notes from the previous issue were overprinted with higher denominations.

The obverse of the note features Cleto Ordoñez who was the General Commander at Arms briefly overthrew the Supreme Head of State Juan Arguello to try and save the political system in the country that was thrown into anarchy in the year 1827.

The rear of the note features the San Francisco Church and Convent in the Colonial city of Granada. Which is currently being used as a museum housing pre-colombian sculptures that are estimated to be over 1000 years old.

The same images would be used with different colours on the 5 million Cordobas notes (P165).
