Catalog & market information for bank notes issued by Caja Central de Emisión y Amortización

At the initiative of Luis Napoleón Dillon, member of the governing board, the Caja Central de Emisión y Amortización (Central Issuance and Amortization Fund, CCE) was created in February 1926, whose mission was to receive all the gold and silver metal reserves of the issuing private banks, as well as all the banknotes that had not yet gone into circulation, to which, to give them legal tender, the CENTRAL CASE OF ISSUE and AMORTIZATION is printed on both the front and the back. The entity limited itself to issuing provisional paper money and replacing the broken and split banknotes in circulation with new revalidated paper money. This procedure achieved the unification of banknotes in the country.
