Bolivia issues first note of new family

The Banco Central de Bolivia has introduced the first banknote of the new family of notes on 10 April 2018 (for some reason I completely forgot to write about this). 

On the front we see: José Santos Vargas, "El Tambor Vargas", a guerrilla who fought in the War of Independence; Apiaguaiki Tüpa, leader of the Guarani who fought against the subjugation of the lands of his people and Eustaquio Méndez, "El Moto Méndez", who also fought in the struggle for the independence of Bolivia.

Additionally, we see Isla del Pescado, located in the Salar de Uyuni, a place that from a distance resembles the figure of a fish; and the Cavern of Umajalanta, located in Torotoro, which is the most extensive and deep of Bolivia. 

Representing the fauna and flora of Boliovia we see images of the Giant Hummingbird, bird of the Andean region
that is characterized by its large size, up to 22 centimeters; and the Puya Raimondi, a plant that exceeds ten meters in height and that blooms only once every 80 years, before dying.

In three months the 20-bolivianos note will follow and so on until all the notes have been issued. The new notes are printed by Oberthur Fiduciare SAS who won the tender last year.
