New 1 Peso Coin with Picture
admin 9

The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) will issue this month a new one (1) peso coin. The issuance of this newly designed one peso coin commemorates the 150th birth anniversary of the Philippines' National Hero Dr. Jose Rizal which was celebrated last June 19, 2011. Rizal died on December 30, 1896 in Bagumbayan (now Luneta) which sparked the Philippine Revolution against the Spaniards.

What will be the design of the new one (1) peso coin?

The face of the coin has the design of the portrait of Dr. Jose Rizal and the markings, "150 years,” "1861-2011", and "Republika ng Pilipinas”. Designed on the reverse side are the new BSP seal, "1-piso” and "2011.”

The new 1 peso coin is round, grayish and nickel-plated steel coin. It has the same size (24-millimeters in diameter) and weight (5.35 grams) as the old one (1) peso coin presently in circulation.

The Office of the President of the Philippines and the Monetary Board of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) have both approved the issuance of the new one (1) peso coin.

Take a look at the picture of the new one (1) peso coin of the Philippines:

it doesnt matter... money is money, the appearance doesn't change its value.

not sure when this was released but i got this as a change when i rode a jeepney. at first i thought it was fake, but it seems real based on research. they said it does not circulate much because people are hoarding it as a memorabilia.
