The Honduran lempira is the official currency in Honduras and was named in honor of the Cacique Lempira in the 16th Century. The lempira was introduced to replace the peso in 1931. The first banknotes in denominations of 1, 2, 5, 10 and 20 lempiras were issued in 1932 by the Bank of Honduras and the Banco Atlantida. In 1950, the 50 and 100 lempiras notes were issued, followed by the 500 lempiras banknote in 1995.

The 500 Lempiras note front design features Ramón Rosa (who was the Lieutenant Secretary of Finance of Guatemala). The reverse note side has the image of the Mines of Rosario de San Juancito (located in a small pueblo in central Honduras). This note is part of the 2012 – 2016 series and, its color is violet and purple.
