The design was done by a team of professionals from that city, made up of graduates Silvia Brun, Laura de la Torre and visual designers Verónica Godoy, Gerardo Hayes, Liliana Madueño, Verónica Quercia and Javier Rubina, who considered "EL PETROLEO, EL WIND, THE SEA AND THE EARTH ", as" ENERGY ", common denominator and characteristic resource of the place, that amalgamates different cultures, coming from different parts of the world and even from different parts of the country. They represented the breadth of the landscape and growth as an idea of progress.
These pieces were minted in the Sociedad de la Estado de Moneda in Argentina and the note and coin recorders Ms. Monica P. Galera and Mr. Juan D. Castillo participated.
