The Central Bank of Argentina has completed the issuance of its Native Animals banknote series with the release of the new 100 pesos banknote.
The 100 peso banknote is the sixth and final denomination to be issued by the Central Bank of Argentina, following the release of the 50 earlier this year, the 20 and 1,000 circulated in 2017, and the 200 and 500 circulated in 2016.
The theme of the new banknote features the Taruca deer which inhabits the Northwest of Argentina.
Like the other banknotes in the series, the front of the 100 pesos banknote is designed vertically whilst the reverse is designed horizontally.
The front of the note features key security features including an optically variable windowed thread, featuring both the denomination and the letters BCVA viewed by turning the note. Additionally, colour changing ink is used for the note’s denomination which changes from green to purple.
Intaglio and offset printing is used on the front of the banknote, whilst the reverse is printed using offset only.
Other security features include microlettering, a watermark, a see through feature and tactile intaglio features.
