The governor of the central bank, Alejandro Díaz de León, highlighted the characteristics of the banknote, which in addition to presenting greater security measures and having characteristics that allow it to be better identified by people with visual impairment, is the first with a mixed design, with a horizontal side and vertical side.

On the obverse of the new 20-peso bill, it can be read: “The solemn and peaceful entry of the Army of the Three Guarantees to Mexico City on September 27 of the memorable year of 1821.”

On the reverse side, the new banknote, which is dominated by red and green,  pays tribute to a mangrove in the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve. The fauna of the red mangrove is represented by the crocodile and the chocolate heron.
