$5 notes of El Banco de Sonora

All the notes have a vignette of Hortensia Corral Velez, the daughter of Ramón Corral. The $5 design has vignettes of a cherub and of Minerva, identified by her warlike pose, helmet raised high atop her head and aegis with the severed Gorgon’s head. The latter was a stock ABNC vignette, entitled “Strength” and originally engraved by Charles Burt in 1872.
