1906-S One Peso Coin - US-Philippine series

One of the rarest coins in the US-Philippine series is the 1906-S 1 peso. The mintage of this coin was said to be a good 201,000(ref) but before they were released in the Philippines, the value of silver has risen so sharply that most of the coins were shipped back to America to be melted. Many of the remaining coins were also damaged from being thrown into the sea when the Japanese invaded the Philippines. Luckily, an estimated 250 of them still exist.

I spotted this 1906-S peso being sold in eBay this morning for $1325. The seller claims the catalog value for this coin in EF grade is $3200. This coin is seldom auctioned off in eBay so you might want to buy it now!

Due to its rarity, many counterfeits of the 1906-S peso coin exist, some made from authentic 1903-S to 1905-S coins.

The seller gives us some tips on how to tell a genuine 1906-S peso.

1) All genuine 1906-S have the straight serif "1" . But beware of a shaven curved serif 1.
2) Check the number "9". The genuine pieces have a larger and rounder knob.
3) The number "0" which the upper inner loop to the right of the 0 is straight rather than oval.
4) Check the number "6" which the knob should be slightly in a teardrop shape rather than round.

my grandpa owns twenty pieces of the 1907 proof version of US-Philippines One peso silver coins. He sold one in the US auction and fetch around 250 thousand US dollars. I am really amazed with the monetary benefit of coin collecting..

I saw 1909 proof one peso US-Philippines silver coin via sulit.com...9k pesos pero maganda yung coin

Since U.S. mints had to replace nearly all of the Islands silver coinage in 1907 it was not felt that there were enough resources to make 1907 Proof Sets. When Proof Set production resumed in 1908 all of the silver coins, including the 1908 One Peso, were struck in the newly authorized reduced weight and fineness. 1909 was the last year of production for Philippine Proof coins and the only year that the reduced size and weight One Peso Proof not circulated.
