Hobbies help to gain knowledge. Notaphily is such a hobby that will acquaint you with the numerous countries and their currencies.

Today let’s see a note from Argentina. Argentina is a massive South American nation with terrain encompassing 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 note depicted beside a 500 Pesos note of 1964-1969 series. The front features the Portrait of General Jose Francisco de San Martin along with the Argentinean Coat of Arms. The back depicts the Replica of the original Casa Grand Bourg (near Paris, France), located in Palermo Chico, Buenos Aires, where Gen. San Martin lived. It currently houses Instituto Nacional Sanmartiniano. This blue note sports the Watermark of General San Martin along with the signatures of E. Ianella (Gerente General) and P.S. Real (Presidente).
