In 2018 onwards, the production and circulation of the new banknote emission called "Historical identity and natural heritage" began, with a complete change in the design of these, since 1994, with the fourth emission, the effigy and the predominant color in all notes, only carrying out new designs. The main reasons for this change are:
Based on the studies and analysis carried out, the characteristics of the new family of banknotes approved by the Governing Board of the Bank of Mexico are as follows:
The new family will comprise 6 denominations: 50, 100, 200, 500, 1000 and 2000 pesos, the latter will only be issued if it is considered that this banknote is required to meet the needs of users. In the case of the 20 pesos denomination, it will gradually cease to circulate as a banknote and will be replaced by coin, this as a result of various technical and cost-benefit studies that have been carried out. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the second semester of 2021 a 20 pesos banknote will be issued to commemorate the Bicentennial of the Consummation of National Independence.
Similar, as far as possible, to those of the current family, but improving the differences in color between the denominations to prevent them from being confused with each other.
The distribution of the current family is maintained, that is, two denominations (50 and 100 pesos) in polymer and the others in cotton substrate. Likewise, it is planned to print in polymer the 20 pesos banknote Commemorating the Bicentennial of the Consummation of National Independence.
Security elements are improved compared to those of the current family, incorporating state-of-the-art measures for the different groups of banknote users, such as the general public, commercial banks, shops, manufacturers of automated banknote processing equipment and the Central Bank. In the case of the new 100, 200, 500 and 1000 peso banknotes, the multicolored denomination is incorporated and in the last three denominations the dynamic thread, as the main measures for their authentication by the public.

First, on August 27, 2018, the 500 pesos bill was introduced. Then the 200 pesos one was put into circulation on September 2, 2019, the 100 pesos one in polymer on November 12, 2020 and the 1000 pesos one on November 19, 2020
For the commemorative 20 pesos and 50 pesos banknotes, production is expected to begin in mid-2021 and, if necessary, the denomination of 2000 pesos will be issued.
The Bank of Mexico classify this emission in the family G.
The 20 pesos denomination will gradually cease to circulate as a banknote and will be replaced by coin. However, in the second semester of 2021, the Bank of Mexico will issue a new "Commemorative" note of 20 pesos on the occasion of the Bicentennial of the Consummation of National Independence.
