The head of the Central Bank of Honduras denied rumors on the decision to issue a thousand-dollar bill. It was speculated that the picture of the poet Juan Ramon Molina would be on the bill. BCH has clarified a week after the speculation.
The other rumor he put to rest was the exchange of 1 and 2 lempiras bills for coins. He also took the opportunity to disclose that at least 120,000 counterfeit lempiras were in circulation.
