Cuba new date (2003) 1-peso note confirmed


A new Cuban 1-peso note has been reported. At first glance, this appears to be just a new date (2003 versus 2002) variety of Pick 121. However, closer examination reveals subtle differences. On the front, the series letters (GD in example above) are green, not red. On the back, the yellow underprint is missing (compare P121 detail above left with that of 2003 issue above right). It is unclear as to whether this is an intentional design change or a printing error. Readers with other examples of the new note are encouraged to share their information.
