New Philippine Peso Bills Mistakes on Geographical Location
At the back sides of the new Philippine peso bills feature tourist sites like the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, the Banaue Rice Terraces, Taal Lake, the Mayon Volcano, Chocolate Hills, and the Tubbataha Reefs National Park.
The design of the new peso bills was criticized again. It has errors in the geographical depiction of sites like the Tubbataha Reefs and the Puerto Princesa Subterranean Park.
The Batanes Islands, found at the country’s northernmost tip, had also been deleted from the printed design of the Philippine map found on the new peso bills.
BSP deputy governor Diwa Gunigundo said that the Batanes Islands were not included because there was not enough space.
"Lahat ng komento ay iniipon namin, ie-evaluate at magkakaroon ng decision moving forward. Ang paggawa ng pera based sa plates, kung kailangan palitan, moving forward (We are collating and evaluating the criticisms about the new bills. Once we make the proper corrections we will implement them on the [printing] plates [for the next batch of bills to be printed.])," she said.
