The beauty of the new Mexican banknotes lies in their landscapes, as the Bank of Mexico used real postcards in different locations in the country to highlight the biodiversity that exists in Mexico.
The G-family banknotes have been released gradually since the end of 2018, with famous historical figures on the reverse side, however on the reverse they present fabulous Mexican locations that are not well known to everyone.
The Bank of Mexico decided to honor six ecosystems recognized by UNESCO as natural heritage of humanity, present in the country such as rivers and lakes, forests, dry forests, scrublands and deserts, coasts, seas, and islands, as well as humid forests.
