Banknote Front Image

The front of the 10 Nuevos Soles bill shows the portrait of José Abelardo Quiñones Gonzáles, a Peruvian air force hero, born in Pimentel 1914. Next to his portrait is the flight school "Aviación de Las Palmas" with a replica of the airplane type North American NA-50 "Torito" in which José Quiñones lost his life.

Banknote Back Image

The rear of the 10 Nuevos Soles bill shows once again José Abelardo Quiñones Gonzáles photographed on the day of his graduation performing an extreme acrobatic presentation. He flew his airplane, a "Caproni 113" upside down only about two meters above the ground. The occasion was the end of the academic year 1938 in the headquarters of the flight school "Central de Aeronáutica - Jorge Chávez".

Security Features

The Peruvian currency Nuevos Soles has been in circulation from 1991 and since then undergone a couple of improvements of the security features. Today all banknotes have similar security features and this makes the verifying process much easier. Please click on the thumbnails/pictures below...

Watermark

The watermark displays the image of the personality with multitone and three dimensional features.

Security thread

The security thread is a plastic strip that is inserted into the paper. Hold the banknote up to a light source and the text PERU 10 will appear crisp without any irregularities.

Matching Circles

On the front there is a circle, actually an Inca design depicting the head of a Puma. On the back there is a ring and the center part is white. Holding the banknote up to a light source both images should line-up perfectly (Banknotes issued before 2011).
