Still looking for new Philippine peso bills



It’s been a Christmas tradition for most ninongs and ninangs to give new and crisp peso bills to their inaanaks. That’s why last week, I went to a bank to exchange my old bills into the crisp ones. That’s also when I remembered that I still have not completed my collection of new Philippine peso bills.

It’s been exactly one year since the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) announced that they will release the new version of  Philippine peso bills. They even said that the new bills will be in public circulation before Christmas of 2010.

Fast forward one year later and after much controversy about the bills’ design (I for one thought they look like play money), it’s now Christmas 2011 and the new bills are still rare to find.

I already have the new P1,000, P100, P50 and P20 bills.

A few months ago, I was able to get hold of a P200-bill but unfortunately had to spend it because I ran out of cash while buying in a store.

Right now, the only one I have not seen is the new P500-peso bill.

Hopefully I can get the P500- and P200-peso bills so I can complete my collection right before the BSP launches the new bills in wide circulation.

How about you, have you seen all new peso bills? Were you lucky to get them from your ninongs and ninangs or were you generous enough to hand them to your inaanaks who visited you yesterday during Christmas?

  1. Ang dami nga nagsasabi na mas maganda daw ung dati kaya itigil na daw ang paggawa ng bago pero for me ayos lang ung design ng bago, para sakin mas ok kung may pagbabago. Later on, mas gaganda pa itsura ng pera natin.

      @Henry, ako mas gusto ko yung hitsura nung luma. Pero yun nga, masasanay din tayo sa bagong bills natin. Saka kahit luma o bago, basta pera, pera pa rin yun! 🙂

  2. May nabalitaan kasi ako na papalitan din yung mga bago kasi mali ang pangalan ni Pnoy. Yung BENIGNO S. AQUINO which is supposedly BENIGNO C. AQUINO. Totoo po ba yun?

      nope. the s in benigno s. aquino is correct. the mother’s maiden surname is not important (per international standard) and so, it has been omitted.  since pnoy has two names in his given names – benigno simeon, the s becomes the middle initial.

  3. why do we need to change the image of our peso bill to the new one? does the currency of each money will increase if the image is more attractive than before? try to think of it!
