200 Pesos Oro 2021

On banknote are the sisters Mirabal.

Las Hermanas Mirabal

The Mirabal sisters (Spanish: hermanas Mirabal [eɾˈmanas miɾaˈβal]) were four sisters from the Dominican Republic, three of whom (Patria, Minerva and María Teresa) opposed the dictatorship of Rafael Trujillo (el Jefe) and were involved in clandestine activities against his regime. The three sisters were assassinated on 25 November 1960. The last sister, Adela "Dedé", who was not involved in political activities at the time, died of natural causes on 1 February 2014.

The assassinations turned the Mirabal sisters into "symbols of both popular and feminist resistance". In 1999, in their honor, the United Nations General Assembly designated 25 November the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.

Flowers of mahogany wood

Centered are the flowers of a national symbol (from 1957 till 2011) of Dominican Republic, mahogany wood (La Caoba, Swietenia mahagoni). It grows throughout most of Latin America, up to 35-50 meters in height and 1.8 m in diameter. Dense wood with a reddish tinge gave another name - red wood. Resistant to environmental influences, mahogany was the basic material for the manufacture of furniture in the Spanish colonies, which led to the brink of its extinction.

The seal of Dominican Bank is on left side.

Museo Hermanas Mirabal

On background is The old house of the Mirabal family and the residence of Dedé Mirabal until her death on 1 February 2014, aged 88. (Museo Hermanas Mirabal).

The Mirabal sisters are the beloved heroines of the Dominican Republic. Therefore, their house, located in the small town of Salcedo, which is about an hour's drive from Santiago, was turned into a museum. The sisters were known as fighters against the dictatorship of Rafael Leonidas Trujillo and were killed by his people, which ultimately led to the fall of the most brutal regime in the Dominican Republic. The museum is surrounded by a beautifully landscaped garden, and its halls display the personal effects of the Mirabal family, including furniture from that time. The museum also has a souvenir shop and a bookstore.

Here, the surviving sister DeDe lived until her death on February 1, 2014. The gardens are beautiful and well maintained. This is a working farm where they grow orchids and cocoa.

Museo Hermanas Mirabal

Across the street from the house of the Mirabal sisters, in Ojo de Auga, Salcedo, where Sister DeDe lived, there is a small park called Plasoleta Hermanas Mirabal. Here is a unique monument, which is a 3 butterflies, symbolizing the dead sisters. Also, here you can see the chassis of the jeep, on which the ladies made their fateful trip. As a result of the staged collision, the front and rear of the car were damaged.

The Ecoparque de la Paz/Peace Ecopark, dedicated to the Mirabal sisters, is a few feet across the street and down the road from the family home. This beautiful park is funded by the Fundación Hermanas Mirabal. Originally led by Belgica Mirabal (DeDe), now her son, Jaime David Mirabal and Mino Tavares Mirabal are overseeing the family history. There are three paths in the park, symbolizing the three dead sisters. (
