(Photos) New Philippine Peso bills


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.

P100 bill

  • Obverse: Former Pres. Manuel A. Roxas
  • Reverse: Mayon Volcano and the “butanding” or whale shark, the world’s largest fish and the main attraction of Donsol, Sorsogon

P50 bill

  • Obverse: Former Pres. Sergio Osmeña

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?

    I don’t like the new look of the banknotes. They kinda look like play money and it’s like the Japanese yen meets the HongKong dollar. I don’t know, it just looks off to me.

  2. eRvN says:

    Yung font nga nya is malaki, parang sa euro na kita mo kaagad kung magkano yung bill. Hindi kaya maging dahilan to ng pagkalat ng mga pekeng pera since hindi pa masyadong pamilyar ang mga tao sa bagong bills.

    would it be possible to post photos of the reverse sides?

    Sa una lang yan pangit sa iba.
    Pero masasanay din.
    Basta importante nandyan na si Cory Aquino.
    Deserve nya yan!

    bat wala si pakyaw? o kaya si kris aquino?

    I agree that those bills looks like Play Money. Sana nman gumawa sila ng mas maganda pa dyan. There are plenty of Filipino designers and layout artist na makakagawa pa ng mas maganda kesa jan.

    sabagay,mas maganda na rin na napalitan para mas madali makita yung amount ng bill at dapat yung color niya is magkakalayo para mas madali pang marecognized yung perang,parang euro currency na rin xa….

    I like the new feel; just make sure the BSP rectifies the errors.

  11. Arcuz says:

    Through all of those new bills. Why won’t they add those of lower values such as the ten peso and five peso bills. If I could remember, there are even 2 peso bill before.

    …para sakin mas ok ngaun ang mga bagong pera. para nmn maiba…ang tikad nga lng ng kulay parang na jobos…

  13. Espie says:

    observe the name of the president it’s BENIGNO S, AQUINO III instead of BENIGNO SEMION C. AQUINO III

  14. Eugene_audit says:
