In 1897 the Ley General de Instituciones de Crédito prohibited banks from issuing notes in denominations below five pesos and banks had to withdraw any outstanding notes within two years so these were called in. 40,000 of these notes were incinerated on 2 January 1900report of interventor Camacho, 21 January 1900, Memorias de las Instituciones de Crédito correspondientes a los años 1897-1898-1899, tomo I. By then end of 1902 another 5,504 had been collectedinforme of interventor Camacho, 20 January 1903 Memorias de las Instituciones de Crédito correspondientes á los años 1900-1902, vol. I.
