How to spot fake money

Do you know what makes a Philippine Peso bill a fake?

If you don’t, these pointers from the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) on how to spot fake currency will definitely come in handy.

  • Genuine currency notes are a bit rough in texture while counterfeit bills are very smooth.
  • Genuine bills also have embossed watermarks. They have window security thread, colored green to magenta when exposed to light.
  • For P10 and P5, genuine coins are not magnetic, have deep “griddings”, and made of smooth, fine metal. Designs of counterfeit coins are off-centered.
  • Genuine one centavo to P1 coins can either be magnetic or non-magnetic. But the BSP said no coins of such denomination have been faked yet.
  • Lastly, authentic currencies don’t have Manny Pacquiao’s face. Well, not yet, that is…
