(printed by el Banco de México)
In order to simplify the expression of quantities in domestic currency, on January 1st, 1993, a new unit of the Mexican Monetary System was created. This unit is equivalent to 1,000 pesos of the previous unit. The adjective "nuevos" (new) was used before the name "pesos" in the new unit for a transitory period, in order to differentiate it from the former monetary unit. The use of this adjective was suppressed on 1996. Banco de Mexico issued, starting from 1993, a new series of banknotes denominated in "nuevos pesos" (new pesos). These banknotes have the same design as the banknotes previously in circulation.
The banknotes lower than 10 New Pesos were replaced by coins.
Throughout all the emission, the letters "I" and "O" are not used in the series and subseries in order to avoid the confusion with the digits 1 and 0.
The banknotes representative of the monetary unit which was in force until December 31st, 1992, have been demonetized; however, one can suppose that these notes can be exchanged by their equivalent amount at the domestic currency exchange centers.
