Owner's Description

These all new designs for the 2002 series A notes were the first release in the Cordoba Oro to have been consolidated with all the denominations (from 10 through to 500 Cordobas) to be uniform in design, being the first time since the first notes were released in 1990.

This same design was carried over to the following 2006 series B notes.

I don't have exact figures but I believe there was approximately 20 million of these notes produced based on the serial numbers I have seen for this issue.

The obverse of the banknote features former Nicaraguan President Jose Santos Zelaya, who ruled over Nicaragua from 1893 to 1909. He was featured on the 20 Cordoba banknotes from 1997 through to 2006 and on the early 1900s issue 5 Pesos notes.

The reverse of the note features a humble fishing boat in a beach scene from the Southern Atlantic Coast (Caribbean Coast).
