50c notes of the Gobierno Preconstitucional del Estado

The Carrancista División 21 attacked from the Istmus to take the state capital, which it achieved at the beginning of March 1916. Governor José Inés Dávila evacuated Oazaca and established his capital in Tlaxiaco and Carranza named José Agustín Castro as gobernador preconstitucional, so that there were two governors in the state.

On 1 April, in decree núm, 36, Castro authorised an issue of $100,000 in vales of 50c and $25,000 in vales of 20c to combat the shortage of small change.On 27 May, by decree núm. 50, he increased the total to $1,000,000, comprised of the following:

20c 1,000,000 200,000
