The main motif is an effigy of Nezahualcóyotl, accompanied by an allegory to the verses "I love the song of zentzontle/bird of four hundred voices" which appear on the banknote. The allegory comprises the drawings of a zentzontle, four symbols of the word, a piece of jade, a flower and two seated men.
The main element is a Nezahualcóyotl-styled glyph vignette next to the drawing of an aqueduct from the High Temple of the México-Tenochtitlán main plaza.
|The predominant colors on the banknote are red and yellow.|
