Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas launched the new Philippine peso bills enhanced with new security features and a fresh new look.

The new generation peso banknotes released this December 2010 still comprise P20, P50, P100, P200, P500, and P1, 000 bills with the same personalities but now with their youthful image designed on the front side of the notes. The iconic natural wonders of the Philippines gave a new look on the reverse side of the new Philippine peso bills.

It would be very difficult for a counterfeiter to copy the new enhanced security features of the new Philippine peso bills which include the use of embossed prints, serial numbers (increasing in size), the use of security fibers, watermarks, see-through mark, concealed value, and security thread.

The paper of the new notes are antibacterial.

    No hope for a bill larger than 1000 PhP, huh? Come on that’s only $20 US ($22 at today’s exchange rate). Not that bad for everyday activities, but if you want to buy something big with cash, you gotta sit on a big fat wallet or carry a purse. But the new bills are exciting and maybe even waterproof, so that will be nice. The colors are better, since you can see a big difference between the 20 and 50 peso notes.

  4. I agree with putopipey. I think we need to have a larger bill than 1000 pesos especially when we’re talking about big amount of money.

    sayang, wala yung philippine eagle, sampaguita, tamaraw to represent our nation. medyo kulang din o walang representation ang mindanao

    The errors mentioned are too childish to even put up a debate. The blue-naped parrot on the 500 bill is inaccurate when it comes to the color. But how will you change that if the color ink used to print the money is only green and yellow? The map being inaccurate that it did not include the islands of Batanes is not even intelligent enough put up a fight. The portrait of the map is truly inaccurate but that is just an artistical redention and not to the point to really be exact as you would like to have it in a digitally imaged photo and so are the locations of the places like the Tubbataha Reefs and Subterranean Underground River. Bottom line is that our money is not meant to show the exact definitions of what it shows. It is a work of ART. This issue is not for the narrow minded. Mabuhay ang Magdalo! Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!

    kaparehas b ng singapore dollar ang new philippine money?wla p kc akong new bill so im curious

  9. Atong Lang says:

    Bakit walang representation yung mga buwaya sa kongreso at mga tuko sa gobyerno? Sabagay marami pa sila at malayo pa ma-extinct. Sige na, tarsier at parrot lang muna.

  10. PisoTracker says:

    I agree that they should consider creating a larger denomination bill, perhaps a 5,000 peso bill. Mas madali bitbitin. Then again, since we’re now in the electronic age, it’s easier to pay services with credit cards or straight from your bank account.

    Gosh the corrupts will be more interested for corruption, looks the peso bills are more attractive…………..
    How much money the government spent for these new bills? while lots are sick and starving………you can see everywhere crazy people, beggars…and so on……..

    But well, they love to change the look of the peso bills……. so the corrupts will be more on fashions…
