Since the 14th of January of this year Paraguay’s 5 mil bill (approximately $1.25) got a makeover! The train has a prominent spot on the newly designed bill that is said to last for four years in circlulation because it’s made from plastic. The current 5 mil has a one year circulation time and is made of cotton. This will certainly be an improvement as there are plenty of bills that have been taped back together multiple times over floating around out there.
