The gourde is the official currency in Haiti since 1813, when the livre was replaced. The Banque nationale d’Haïti began to introduced notes in denominations of 1, 2, 5, 10 and 20 gourdes in 1920, followed by 50 and 100 gourdes in 1925. The 25, 250 and 500 gourdes notes were issued in the 1970s. The 1000 gourdes note were announced in 1999 to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the founding of Port-au-Prince. The 1, 2, 5, and 20 gourdes notes are no longer circulated.

Currently are circulating banknotes with denominations 10, 25, 50, 100, 250, 500 and 1000 gourde.

The 500 gourdes note front features Alexandre Sabès Pétion (1770 – 1818), who was the first president of Haiti. The reverse note side has Fort Jacques (Fermathe). This note is part of the 1999 – 2016 series and, its color is Purple on tan underprint.
