don't know if what i heard was true... but...

they say that the material used to mint the coin is worth than what's actually printed on the coin...

they say that there's a certain amount of silver in there...

which is why you don't normally see it in circulation today...

another theory is that the unstamped or blank coins were made in korea... and some people from korea knew the real value of the coin... so once it was stamped or minted... it was highly sought after...

that's what i heard... any truth to this???

also wondering how many marcos 5 peso coins were actually produced for circulation... anybody???

I heard that part of the metal to be extracted therefrom is sought after for aerospace component structures so as discreetly bought in by foreign "mid-man".
