Frida on Mexican Currency

Have you seen this? A student of mine mentioned about a month ago that Frida Khalo and Diego Rivera were featured on the $500 pesos ($50) bill. I finally got my hands on one! I have to say that the Mexican Treasury Dept. did a good job in representing their images, although I wish that Frida's image was just as large as Diego's. The bill also features images of some of their best known pieces. I just might have to get my hands on a few more and keep them as keepsakes for my three kids. I'm not sure how long these will be in production so I better not wait too long.
