These 20 pesos Specimen notes were issued by Cuba in 1964. (P97) The portrait of Camilo Cienfuegos is on the front while on the back we finda depiction of the disembarkation from the yacht Granma in 1956. On board were 82 fighters intent on overthrowing the regime of Fulgencia Batista to initiate the Cuban Revolution. Batista predicted where the fighters would land and sent helicopters and planes to attack the group. 62 were killed but among the survivors was Fidel Castro and as they say the rest is history. The yacht, which soon became an icon for Cuban communism can now be seen in the Museum of the Revolution in Havana. Crisp Uncirculated 20 pesos 1964 Specimen at just £8.95 each
The passing of Fidel Castro caused quite a wide variety of opinions as to his place in history. There were no monuments to him in Cuba but this 1 peso Specimen note dated in the 1960s and 1970s is perhaps the only one featuring Fidel. It depicts his triumphant entry into Havana on 8th January 1959 after the overthrow of the Batista regime. Fidel is shown alongside fellow revolutionary Camilo Cienfuegos and surrounded by a large crowd. Crisp Uncirculated at £7.50
