The 2,000-peso bill has been circulating since May 22, after having advanced its launch. As there are still few units on the street and people are not familiar with them, the Central Bank seeks to spread the characteristics to look at when the first one appears in the wallet.
The banknote has as predominant colors shades of dark gray and pink, with the portraits of Ramón Carrillo and Cecilia Grierson on the obverse, and the building of the National Institute of Microbiology Dr. Carlos G. Malbrán on the reverse.
Among the "strict security measures" that the ticket has to avoid counterfeiting are the watermark that reproduces the images of Ramón Carrillo and Cecilia Grierson and the optical variability ink that changes color, with a three-dimensional dynamic effect.
According to the entity, the banknote is made of a paper that has the same physical and chemical characteristics as current banknotes, and includes specific identification elements for people with blindness, such as the code with relief perceptible to the touch that is located on both vertical edges.
