Argentina is a massive South American nation which has a terrain that encompasses the Andes Mountains, glacial lakes and Pampas’s grassland, the traditional grazing ground of its famed beef cattle. The country is famous for tango dance and music. Its big, cosmopolitan capital, Buenos Aires, is centred on the Plaza de Mayo, lined with stately 19th-century buildings including Casa Rosada, the iconic, balconied presidential palace.

The peso is the currency of Argentina, and it is subdivided into 100 centavos. In 1992, banknotes were introduced in denominations of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, and 100 pesos.

Today we are looking at a 5 Pesos banknote Issued from 1960 to 1962. The obverse depicts the portrait of General San Martin to right; while the reverse depicts the May Revolution in Buenos Aires. This multi-coloured note has the portrait General San Martin as its watermark.
