Although recently the Bank of Mexico (Banxico) presented a new 100 peso bill, in which the image of Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz can be seen, there are others in circulation with various characters.

For example, those with the image of Nezahualcóyotl, which correspond to families D, D1 and F as well as others from family F, commemorating the Mexican Revolution and the Constitution of 1917. Some are still printed on paper and others on polymer.

Both these, as well as the new one of 100 pesos in which Sor Juana Inés, from the G family appears, must be accepted as a form of payment.

Also those of 1000 pesos are still valid
