According to an article on Latino Fox News dated 23 July 2012, the Banco Central de la República Argentina is preparing to issue 20 million commemorative 100-peso (US$22) note bearing the face of Eva "Evita" Perón to mark the 60th anniversary of her death. The new notes are based on the design of a 5-peso note from 1952 that never went into circulation.

UPDATE: According to this Spanish-language article, one million notes were issued 21 September 2012, the 60th anniversary of Evita's death, though there seems to be some technical printing problem to resolve.
