Banknotes belonging to the D1 have similar design features to those of D type banknotes but include new security features. The 50-, 100-, 200-, and 500-peso denominations entered circulation in 2001. The 20-peso banknote was the first polymer banknote and it entered circulation in 2002. The 1000-peso banknote entered circulation in 2004.

They are currently in the process of being withdrawn from circulation. This means that they continue to be legal tender (their face value is the denomination stated). However, by Banco de México’s resolution they are withdrawn from circulation by commercial banks. This means that are valid for commercial and exchange transactions but when they arrive to commercial banks, they are set apart and will no longer be handed out to the public.
