Uruguay has recently issued a new note in polymer plastic to mark the 50th Anniversary of the formation
of the Central Bank of Uruguay. 1967-2017 (P-New) Naturally the denomination chosen
for this important landmark was the 50 pesos uruguayos. The front is quite simple while the back
depicts an excerpt from the work of art Construccion Portuario by Walter Deliotti. While this is
Uruguay’s first foray into polymer notes it is understood that this substance will be used in future non
Uruguay’s 1st Polymer 50 pesos in Uncirculated.
These 100 francs follow that admirable French tradition of beautifully and delicately designed notes.
Our group has notes dated between 1930 and 1939. The front has allegorical figures alongside
farming vignettes with apple trees, sheep and bales of wool. The back features a seated blacksmith to
the left and allegorical figures with a cornucopia of fruit to the right.
Our notes have all seen circulation and grade VG to Fine.
