Juan Manuel de Rosas issues. Juan Manuel de Rosas (1793-1877) was a politician and army officer who ruled Argentina from 1835 to 1852. He is often referred to a cruel dictator as well as the "restorer of the laws". He believed that the province of Buenos Aires was the seat of power and should control the economy of the country, which led to conflicts and revolts by some of the other provinces. He also engaged in wars with Bolivia, Brazil, Peru, Uruguay and their allies, Great Britain and France, which resulted in blockades of the port during these conflicts. He was ruthless to his opposition, namely those who wanted to have unified rule with all of the provinces sharing in the government and the economy. His feelings can be seen in the banknotes issued during his administration. The second issue proclaimed, "Death to the Unitarian Savages". He was defeated in the battle of Caseros in 1852 and fled to England where he lived until his death. His biography is an interesting read.

High value Rosas notes are very rare as most were redeemed.
