War Heroes
Josefa Llanes Escoda (20 September 1898-January 1945) is a social worker, educator, advocate of women's right to vote; founder of the Girl Scouts of the Philippines and newspaper editor. She showed extraordinary courage by continuing to help prisoners of war during the Japanese Occupation. For this, she and her husband Antonio were killed before the end of the war.

Brigadier General Vicente P. Lim (24 February 1888 - 31 December 1944) was the first Filipino West Point graduate and rose to the rank of Chief of Staff of the Philippine Army. Initially wounded in action, he directed guerrilla activities from his hospital bed during the World War II. He was eventually captured and died in the hands of the Japanese. For his military service, he received the Legion of Merit and the Purple Heart.

Jose Abad Santos (19 February 1886 - 2 May 1942) was the Chief Justice of the Philippine Supreme Court. He completed his Bachelor of Laws degree in Northwestern University and Masters of Laws from Georgetown University as a scholar. He was executed for refusing to cooperate with the Japanese forces. Informed of his impending execution, he told his son ho had been captured with him: "It is a rare opportunity to die for one's country."

The 130,000 hectare Tubattaha Reef Marine Park in Sulu Sea is one of the Philippines' oldest ecosystems. It is home to a great diversity of marine life: whales, dolphins, sharks, and turtles are among the key species found here. The reef ecosystem supports over 350 species of coral and almost 500 species of fish. Declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it plays a key role in the reproduction, dispersal, and colonization by marine organisms in the whole Sulu Sea system and in helping support fisheries outside its boundaries. It is a natural laboratory for studying ecological and biological processes, displaying process of coral reef formation, and supporting marine species dependent on reef ecosystems. The presence of tiger and hammerhead sharks, which are top predator species, indicates the ecological balance of the property.
South Sea Pearls - Sulu Sea is part of the South Seas, which are the natural habitat of oysters that produce the largest pearls grown in the world - the Pinctada maxima. The colors of these treasures from the sea range from white to silver and golden.

It is right that we put a Bible Verse in our Peso Bills. "Pinagpapala ang bayan na ang Diyos ay ang Panginoon".

thanks for this post. i actually like the new bills, although i must say manuel roxas looks more dignified in the old 100 peso bill. (oppositely, manuel quezon looks awful young in the new 20 peso bill, parang curious case of benjamin button lang :)

hey, dyou have any idea how much each of the new bills cost to make?
I heard the 1 dollar costs 6 to 7 cents.

we shouldnt put bible verse on our peso bill, because money is te root of all evil right?

rotayuju said...

"For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil" 1 Timothy 6:10, not money is root of all evil. because money is nonliving thing, it is innocent. the one who "love" money sins. which means your mindset towards money is makes you sin. either you are poor or rich

José Abad Santos, Vicente Lim, Josefa Llanes Escoda:
1. What were there achievements?
2. Is it enough for them to be on the 1000 Philippine peso bill?
3. Weren't there more heroes who are more worthy to be on the 1000 Philippine peso bill?
4. When you were still studying in school, have you personnaly heared the names of these people as Philippine heroes?
