Argentina contracts for new banknotes to be printed

According to a post on the Federación de Entidades Numismáticas y Medallísticas Argentinas, the Banco Central de la República Argentina has approved a contract to print 1.205 million banknotes denominated in 5, 50, and 100 pesos. The Casa de Moneda (the mint) can print only 800 million units, so the remainder will be printed by Compañía de Valores Sudamericana, formerly known as Ciccone.

Additionally, a notice on the bank's web site indicates that new 100-peso notes series T are now in circulation with the same security features as the series S notes introduced in December 2010.
