Argentina is considering printing notes with Messi’s image on them after helping the country win the World Cup trophy.
According to Argentine press sources, the Central Bank of Argentina is considering a proposal to put Lionel Messi’s image on the Argentine peso after winning the 2022 World Cup.
El Financiero reports that Central Bank authorities are looking into ways to commemorate the Tango team’s historic coronation during the World Cup in Qatar, much like they did following their victory in the 1978 World Cup, when special commercial coins were made available.
The newspaper pointed out that one of the options of the Central Bank of Argentina is to print Messi’s image on the 1,000-peso, where officials in Argentina want to show the number “10”, which begins with the number 1000, and the word “La Scaloneta” is written, which symbolizes the winning team of coach Lionel Scaloni.
The Argentine national team succeeded in winning the 2022 Qatar World Cup title, led by star Lionel Messi, beating France in the final match that brought them together at Lusail Stadium on December 18.
Huge celebrations began in the Argentinian capital as soon as Argentina’s national team overcame France in the World Cup final in Qatar.
