Philippine Peso Coins and Banknotes

Philippine Coins and Banknotes

New Generation Banknote Designs Released!

Finally! The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas has released the New Generation designs of Philippine banknotes including the new 500 peso bill with both Ninoy and Cory. Here they are!



So what's new with these banknotes?
  • More realistic portraits of former Philippine presidents and heroes
  • Tourist destinations and notable animals found in the country on the reverse
  • New BSP logo and Republic of the Philippines Seal
  • New euro-like design with large numbers for easy identification.
  • Security features are spruced most noticeably the serial numbers which some might find weird and the security thread which is wider. A foil-like optically variable device is found in the new 500 and 1,000 peso bills.
  • The paper used is "hygienically treated" or has anti-bacterial properties.
What's the same?
  • Color schemes were maintained except for the 20 peso bill which I think has a different tone of orange.
  • The size of all banknotes appear to have been maintained.
  • The same paper made of abaca-cotton. The BSP considered plastic/polymer before but they might have foreseen some problems with that especially with the way Filipinos crumple, fold, crease, and roll money.
Expect the new 20 and 50 peso bills next week in time for the Christmas! The rest will probably follow next year. Don't worry, the old designs will still be valid for the next three years.

Does the Central bank have any plans to change existing coins in circulation...?

A change in existing banknotes should be complemented by a change in coins, right...?

Oh... I love mango, LOL!

Nice site you got here. I am looking for an exchange partner for Philippines current and uncirculated notes. If you are interested, please feel free to contact me for a chat.

Have a great new year.

the One Peso 1972-1974 does not worth much. Unless they are in mint or uncirculated condition. They are still too many. Akso they are not made or contain silver.

I read an article somewhere that the "embossed" or "carved" feature has disappeared. Is this true?

The Marcos era banknotes are better. And still better were the pre-marcos era banknotes.
The presence of the Oquina's in 500 bill is a total crap and shit. Worse, their abnoy son changes to what is now a total piece of shit garbage and trash worthless paper bill.

i've read from wikipedia that new coins will be released this year(2012), and these coins will feature national symbols of the philippines. :)

i really like the new banknotes,,
yes,there are fakes existing but at the end of the day,for us to enjoy our currency's beauty, we filipinos must take time to know the easily recognizible security features of these notes...

Saan ba napunta ang mga pera ng Phil. government...at bakit palagi printing...kinurakot ba ang mga pera ng gobyerno? kaya pala maraming utang...baka ang mga bagong printing ay itago nila para sa kanilang next generations. Ang mga "gold and silver" coins meron kaya? baka itago din nila para kayaman ng kanilang next generation!

I'm looking for gold and silver phil. coins. hindi pa ako naka kita ng Phil. real gold and silver" coins. bakit ba tina tago ng gobyerno or ang mga ang mga real silver coins?

Anonymous said...

Palagi printing ng paper bills para saan ba ma punta. Dapat alamin ng mga filipino kung ilang billions ang kanilang na printing at saan ma punta. Puro nalang siguro kurakot ang politiko at mga empleyado ng mga bangko. Dapat almin lahat ng mga filipino

Anonymous said...

Investigahin ng mga filipino kung bakit meron silang mga Phil gold and silver coins...sila lang ba ang dapat may alam?

Anonymous said...

Hello, kapwa filipino go to the phil. bank anywhere in the Phil. and trade your bills for silver coins, ask a teller to trade... yumaman ang mga kurakot. kayo rin kapwa pinoy.. malaki ang ka palit ng silver coins very soon! start digging!
