Hmm this 1 peso coin have a melt value (75% copper) of 1.38 pesos (138% of face value), Filipino should know that they should hoard this 1 peso coins I know I would XD.

Imagine you gain 38 centavos for every 1 peso coin you own. Filipinos are rich they just didn't know it XD

The melt value of 1 peso prior to 2004 is more than the melt value of 1 US nickel (5 US cents), despite 1 peso's Face value is less than the US nickel, that's why the central bank of the philippines want them back to be remelted and sold to in the industry for profit.
