Yesterday, many news reported that Argentina is planning Evita banknote to mark the 60th anniversary on July 26th of her death. Evita Duarte was the second wife of President Juan Perón and served as the First Lady of Argentina from 1946 until her death from cancer in 26 July 1952 at the age of 33. The new banknote will be inspired by 1952 Argentina 5 Pesos bill which has been design after Evita death but when the military dictatorship took power in 1955, the banknote has been withdrawn. According to the Buenos Aires media, one of the worker at the Argentine printing house managed to hide and save from the military one of the original engravings for the original 5 Peso bill. They're no news which value will be use for the new Argentine banknote and they're no news about the release date of the new banknote.
I start to learn about Evita Peron when I read about Argentina history in my school days. I truly understand and feel what happened during Evita era when I watched the musical "Evita" written by Andrew Lloyd Webster and Tim Rice which was made into a film in 1994 by Alan Parker with Madonna as the first lady. The face of Evita has appeared in commemorative coins, one in 1997 under President Carlos Menem in honour of the fifty years of the woman’s vote, a bill sponsored by Evita and in 2002 when the half century of her death.
Nowadays, you can found Pictures of Evita and her husband Juan Peron in almost every government office as a symbol of Peronism or "Social Justice". From 1955 until 1971 when the military dictatorship of Argentina issued a ban on Peronism. It became illegal not only to possess pictures of Juan and Eva Perón even in one's home, but even to speak their names.
