Text Box: 	The Bank of Guatemala was created in 1945, but began its works on July the 1st  1948. 
	All notes issued since than should be redeemable.
	Until 1979 the quetzal was pegged to and domestically equal to the US dollar.
	In 2001 the quetzal loses its legal tender status (it is legal to use not only quetzals, but also any other currency as payments).
