Cory & Ninoy Aquino on 500 Peso Bill?

Why not? They fought for a common cause and gained the respect of Filipinos worldwide. Now, they deserve to be together. Besides, all former Philippine Presidents who passed away (except Marcos and Laurel) have appeared on circulation banknotes. Even current president Arroyo is already in the P200 bill. Above is the artwork by Peace love and revolution placing side by side, Corazon "Cory" Aquino and Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino, Jr. I think this is something that is not far from happening. I just think that since Cory is smiling, Ninoy should also smile like this.

FYI: Cory is already honored in the Philippines' largest denominated coin - the 1992 P10,000 coin - but how many can actually have that or even know it exists?

I was planning to make something like this before Cory will be buried today but when I searched the net, someone already thought of it. And since "Revolution" did such a good job in duplicating the texture and fonts (click on image to enlarge), this one is very much worth our attention.

Yep. I agree. It would look nice to have them both on the 500 peso bill especially with Cory's contribution to the Republic of the Philippines.

Let's just not hope they'll allot space for Kris in the 500 bill as well... scary thought.
