Mexico 2010 Mexican New Banknotes 2-pc Set-Commemorate the Centennial of the Mexican Revolution and the Bicentennial of the Mexican Independence (With Error!)
Price: $40.00
A crisp uncirculated pair of 2010 Mexican commemorative banknotes, with matching serial numbers, is included in a colorful souvenir folder issued by Banco de México.

Adding to collector interest is an error in one of the notes--contained in microlettering just above a transparent stalk of corn in the polymer 100 Pesos note commemorating the centennial of the Beginning of the Mexican Revolution (1910-1920). "Sufragio electivo y no reelección" is written, however the famous quote from Francisco Madero--politician, writer, revolutionary and President of Mexico--should have been "Sufragio efectivo no reelección" (Real Democracy, No Reelection). The President of Mexico, Felipe Calderón, personally apologized for the error—but corrected notes were not issued.

The front of the 100-peso banknote depicts a locomotive, which was used to transport revolutionary troops. On the reverse side, a segment of the mural "Del Porfirismo a la Revolución" (From the Dictatorship of Porfirio Diaz to the Revolution), painted by David Alfaro Siqueiros in 1957.

The 200-peso bill commemorates the Bicentennial of the Beginning of the Mexican Independence (1810-1821). The obverse depicts the Mexican priest, Miguel Hidalgo, who became known as “The Father of Mexico,” carrying his banner that was later used by the independence fighters. The reverse depicts the iconic monument the "Ángel de la Independencia" which is located in Mexico City and that is featured on Mexican Libertad silver and gold bullion coins.
