The AA-type banknotes were the last Mexican notes printed by the American Bank Note Company. These banknotes were issued by Banco de México and remained in circulation from the late thirties and early forties to the late sixties and early seventies. They were withdrawn from circulation as from 1992. They are currently demonetized because they belong to the monetary unit that remained valid until December 31, 1992. This means that they are no longer legal tender and cannot be used to carry out transactions. Their current value is equivalent to one thousandth of their denomination.
