What is our New Philippine Money made up of?

The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) does not use plastic or polymer in creating our Philippine money (banknotes). BSP uses a durable paper made mainly of 80 percent cotton and 20 percent abaca. The main reason is to support Filipino abaca farmers.

For many years, BSP uses abaca because it makes the Philippine money (banknote) more durable, thus, improving its life span. Same with Japan, they also use abaca. In fact, BSP makes it a policy for their suppliers of banknotes to use abaca.
