of the contents of the latest issue. Thanks! -Editor
A new issue of “El Sitio” was published this month, the electronic bulletin of the Instituto Uruguayo de Numismática, in Montevideo,
Uruguay. In this opportunity, “El Sitio” N° 20 marked five years of uninterrupted work.
This special number has 28 pages, three numismatic articles and a lot of information.
The cover of “El Sitio” N° 20 shows the first banknote issued by the Banco de la República Oriental del Uruguay (BROU) in 1896. The 10
pesos note was printed in the Compañía Sudamericana de Billetes de Banco, in Buenos Aires (Argentina). The BROU, a public commercial bank
(also with the functions of a Central Bank till 1967), celebrates 125 years since its foundation this next October 22th.
The three articles are related to the famous “Peso del Sitio”, struck in Montevideo in 1844; the tokens of “Estanzuela”, a historical
ranch in the Colonia Department; and the money of the Lodz Ghetto in Poland.
“El Sitio” informs as well the latest news about the “Jornadas Uruguayas de Numismática 2016” that will take place on October 15 th and
16 th at the Holiday Inn Hotel in Montevideo, Uruguay. If you are interested in this event, you can write to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank
