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.

This particular 1945 issue there was 5 million banknotes issued. They were put into circulation through a couple of separate executive decrees. The first was # 54 on the 10th of December 1946 for serial numbers 000001 - 500000. There is a decree I couldn't locate which would have placed 500001 - 1000000 into circulation. And the decree # 7 on the 29th of July 1948 that placed a further 3.35 million 1 cordoba notes into circulation (1000001 - 4350000) and a further 650,000 (4350001 - 5000000) to be held in the bank vaults.

These have created 6 and 7 digit serial number variations for this year of issue.
