Banknote Front Image

The 200 Nuevos Soles bill is the highest valued banknote and the front is decorated with the effigy of the Saint Rose of Lima, patron saint of Latin America, India and the Philippines, born in 1586. St. Rose was beatified by Pope Clement IX in 1667, and canonized in 1671 by Pope Clement X as the first Catholic in the Americas to be canonized by the Roman Church. Next to her portrait is the well of the wishes, a place often visited by her believers.
