Argentina won't see new 500-peso note in January 2016

Argentina has a new president, Mauricio Macri, and he has made a statement on the country's banknotes which is of course interesting for us collectors. He stated that the country needs a new 500-peso note but in contrast with his appointed Interior Minister he denied that the new note will be issued in January 2016.

The biggest problem for that plan is the fact that the new head of the National Bank of Argentina, Federico Sturzenegger, has to be appointed first. But the current head of the national bank has been appointed until 2019 so that's a bit of a problem.
