Some of you might have already noticed new one hundred peso banknotes with a different shade of purple. Don't worry, it's not fake.

Last month the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas started issuing new 100 beso bills with a pale purple (mauve) color. This was to address complaints that the 100 peso notes looked very similar to the 1000 peso bills.
