Banknote Front Image

On the front of the 50 Nuevos Soles is a portrait of Abraham Valdelomar Pinto, a famous known writer and historian, born 1888 in Ica. To his right appears the corner of the "Palais Concert". At that time the Palais Concert was the center for regular meetings of the intellectuals in Lima. It's located on the Corner of Jr. de la Union with Av. de la Emancipación.

Banknote Back Image

The back of the 50 Nuevos Soles bill shows an image of the lagoon of Huacachina which lies in the district of Ica. Legend holds that the lagoon was created when a beautiful native princess was apprehended at her bath by a young hunter. She fled, leaving the pool of water she had been bathing in to become the lagoon. The folds of her mantle, streaming behind her as she ran, became the surrounding sand dunes. And the woman herself is rumored to still live in the oasis as a mermaid.

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 (Mr. Abraham Valdelomar Pinto) with multitone and three dimensional features (Banknotes issued before 2011).

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 50 will appear crisp without any irregularities. Additionally, if you look closely a hologram appears with the profile of some fighting cocks (Banknotes issued before 2011).

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).

Hidden Number

By placing the banknote horizontally in front of the eye, start tilting it up/down. The value of 50 should appear (Banknotes issued before 2011).

Micro lettering

By using a magnifying glass the micro lettering PERU should appear repeatedly in the number 50 (bill value) - for Banknotes issued before 2011.

Micro lettering

Around the personality on the banknote is a shadow created by using micro lettering of the word PERU (Banknotes issued before 2011).

Micro lettering

Under the writing "Banco Central de Reserva del Perú" (top left corner) is a line created with micro lettering (repeatedly the text: BANCO CENTRAL DE RESERVA DEL PERU) for Banknotes issued before 2011.
