President Manuel L. Quezon (19 August 1978 - 1 August 1940)
Popularly known as the "Father of the National Language," Manuel L. Quezon is the second president of the Philippines and the first to be elected through a national election. He worked tirelessly to gain recognition for the Philippines as an independent nation. During his term, a national language for the Philippines was adopted and Filipino women were given the right to vote. Quezon is the first Filipino president to hold office in Malacañan Palace by the Pasig River in Manila.

The Banaue Rice Terraces in Northern Philippines were carved out of the mountains of the Cotrdilleras around 2,000 years ago by Filipino ancestors using simpe tools. Breathtaking for its high altitude, steep slopes and area covered, the Banaue Rice Terraces showcases a mastery of engineering that is appreciated to the present. It has been declared a World Heritage Site by the United Nations.

The palm civets in the Cordilleras are famous for producing one of the best and expensive coffee varieties in the world - Coffee Alamid. The coffee beans that they eat, partially digest, and released as droppings are prized for their flavor and aroma.

His years of birth and death are wrong. 1978 instead of 1878 and 1940 instead of 1944

Malacañan is the English official name of the palace so tama din ang spelling nya. :)sa P20 note wala namang nakalagay na date ng birth and death ni Quezon. :)

@ taeliciuos, BSP are right na walang mali sa bagong pera in circulation ngayun... they are not stupid enough (like you) na magpapalabas ng pera na may mali o wrong spelling... for your info, "Malacañan Palace" (printed ngayun sa pera) is referring to the OFFICIAL RESIDENCE of the Phil. president and the official english name of the palace... The "Malacañang Palace" your talking is about is referring to the OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT and is indisputably filipino and spanish in origin! AND BOTH ARE TOTALLY DIFFERENT!
To the Presidents middle name, it is totally personal choice... In the Philippines, it is the custom to use the mother's maiden name as the middle initial. That is how we do it in the Philippines, but not in other countries like the USA. It is Benigno Simeon Aquino III (Benigno S. Aquino III) because he is the third with that name. There is no one else is named "Benigno Cojuangco Aquino" (Benigno C. Aquino) so there is no need to even use a suffix to differentiate his name from his father and grandfather. So its either "Benigno S. Aquino III" or just "Benigno C. Aquino", but he prefers "Benigno S. Aquino III".
