Ernesto Che Guevara

The Engraving is done from the world-famous two-tone portrait of Che Guevara from the front, which became a symbol of romantic revolutionary movement. The portrait was created by Irish artist Jim Fitzpatrick from the photo, made in 1960 by Cuban photographer Alberto ​​Korda. On Che Gevara's hat is the star of Jose Marti, the hallmark of Comandante, received from Fidel Castro in July 1957 along with this title.

Ernesto "Che" Guevara [June 14, 1928 - October 9, 1967), commonly known as el Che or simply Che, was an Argentine Marxist revolutionary, physician, author, guerrilla leader, diplomat, and military theorist. A major figure of the Cuban Revolution, his stylized visage has become a ubiquitous counter cultural symbol of rebellion and global insignia in popular culture.

Denominations are in lower left and top right corners, also centered.

On the reverse of the banknote, on the right, vertically, a stripe is imprinted (most likely for the purpose of protection against counterfeiting). The inscription repeats on the strip: "Banco Central de Cuba Tres Pesos".

However, it is not yet clear for what purpose, but, in the word TRES, a mistake was made in one place, the letter E is missing - TRS.
