The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) unveiled yesterday the newest series of the Philippine Peso bills. The banknotes, which will be in public circulation soon, sport a more modern design with visual elements and security features that are not in the current peso bills.

Here are the new look of the latest banknote series of the Philippine Peso.

P50 bill

  • Obverse: Former Pres. Sergio Osmeña
  • Reverse: Taal Lake and the Giant Trevally (locally known as Maliputo), a delicious milky fish

P20 bill

  • Obverse: Manuel L.Quezon
  • Reverse: Banaue Rice Terraces and a palm civet from the Cordilleras, which are famous for producing the civet cat coffee or kapeng alamid.

I’ve not personally seen or held the new bills yet  but for now I still prefer the old look of the Peso bills. I don’t know why but the new banknotes seem too modern to me while the old bills exude some flair of history and nostalgia.

And is it just me or the font of the peso value on the left of the new bills is a bit big?
