This bundle (two newspaper articles, YouTube link, infographic and lesson plan) explores the "identity" of the new Mexican 500 peso bill, introduced in August of 2018. Featuring the image of Benito Júarez on the front and whales on the back, the bill is part of a new family of notes that is set to be released by the Bank of Mexico throughout 2019.
Reaction to the new bill in the Spanish-language newspapers has been mixed. Many people have taken to social media to complain that it too closely resembles the 20 peso note.
Students will compare the 20 peso note with the 500 peso note as they learn vocabulary related to finance.
