Current Philippine Coins

The New BSP Series

Until 1997, legal tender Philippine Coins consisted of 25 different designs from the English Series to the Improved Flora and Fauna Series. In response to public clamor for simplification, the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas issued BSP Circular No. 81 which called for the demonetization of all existing Central Bank coins in circulation. Effective January 2, 1997, only the New BSP coin series was deemed legal tender. In 2000, The 10-Peso coin was introduced, the first bi-metallic coin in Philippine history.

Hi do you know where can I get a 1centavo coin? all I see is the 5 centavo coin (w/ hole in the middle). I'm afraid the BSP will replace our coins but still I don't have any remembrance that a 1centavo coin of the current design ever existed. my email is fscost@gmail.com Thanks!
