Introducing the 50 Pesos polymer banknote P-133; B-714, a blend of worth and cultural heritage, equivalent to US$2.24 or €1.92. Measuring 65 x 125 mm, this striking note is imbued with shades of regal purple, exuding an air of dignity. Crafted from the robust GUARDIAN™ polymer, it embodies modernity and strength.

The front unfolds a tapestry of history – the founding of Tenochtitlan, present-day Mexico City, comes to life. A glimpse of the Grand Tenochtitlan, a Diego Rivera mural, adds an artistic touch. The eagle with a cactus, depicting the reverse side of the “Teocalli de la Guerra Sagrada,” symbolizes the nation’s roots.

Flipping the note reveals an intricate ecosystem of rivers and lakes, where the enigmatic Ajolote, also known as Axolotl (Ambystoma mexicanum), thrives in the Xochimilco lake in Mexico City. A nod to nature’s wonders and the nation’s biodiversity.

Security features are robust – an integrated magnetic thread bears the denomination, integrated with a pre-Hispanic inspired design. A Banco de México (BdM) creation, this note carries the weight of the nation’s central bank’s legacy.

The watermark, a large, complex transparent window, showcases G-SWITCH™ and METALIX™ inks. The G-SWITCH feature transforms from blue to gold upon movement, while the METALIX ink shimmers in copper hues.

Dated 31 MAR. 2021, marked with series AA, and introduced on 1st November 2021, this 50 Pesos polymer banknote encapsulates Mexico’s historical and natural splendor. It stands as a testament to the nation’s past and present, where culture, nature, and security intertwine.
