As the country of Argentina faces record inflation, Lionel Messi brought some hope and happiness to the entire country by leading the national team to a FIFA World Cup victory.
To not only honor Messi for his legendary effort, but also give hope to the people of Argentina during these difficult times the country’s central bank is considering putting Messi front and center of their new banknotes.
Central bank directors Eduardo Hecker and Lisandro Cleri both agreed that a Messi banknote design would “awaken the collecting spirit of Argentines” according to a report by El Financiero.
If the plan were to go ahead, Messi’s face would be considered to go on the 1000-peso note. Considering how well he has represented Argentina throughout his career and during the 2022 FIFA World Cup, don’t be surprised if Messi money becomes a reality.
