The Central Bank of Uruguay will present and put into circulation the new 50 peso bill, which will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the BCU.
The new ticket will begin to circulate as of Friday and is made with polymer substrate.
The current 50 peso bill was printed in 1994. In 2008 it included two signatures and a watermark to improve its security.
The Central Bank was created in 1967 and, since its creation, has been in charge of issuing notes and coins throughout the national territory. Previously, the responsibilities and functions assumed by that institution were fulfilled by Banco República. The BCU is responsible for managing the circulation of money, issuing banknotes with special distinctive features to ensure their authenticity.
