    Wonder if they will get rid of the 20 peso note. Such a pretty one.

    I hope they don't get rid of the 20 peso note, they're perfect for drink tips.

    And the new ones are part plastic or something. Very durable.

    Gracias for the heads up, Craig!

    OK..I'll be the party pooper. I am not a fan of carrying around those heavy 10 peso coins so I wont like these either. But I like how Mexico varies the color and size of the bills.

    It's going to take a better slight of hand for the gas station attendant to do a switcheroo now.
    My 200 peso bill changed to a 20 peso coin?? NOT! [:D]

    Pretty sure they'll be just as happy to take a 20 peso coin. Canadians are used to tipping with coins as we got rid of our single dollar banknotes in the 1980s.

    What's more common these days - the 20 peso note (or bill) or the 20 peso coin?
