Hello! ! Didn't realize, I brought pesos which are not updated, thought they are still good. My niece called and told me they don't accept the olds now. If only I knew, I should have left the pesos with them. Is there a way that I can exchange it still? Since I was not aware of the this matter?

Hi Asul, please visit the Bangko sentral ng Pilipinas website. Bangko Sental ng Pilipinas

You need to update the images to include the new money. Tourists might think they are getting counterfeit if the money they get looks different then the images you have posted here.

Just a trivia. do you know that Philippines has ten thousand peso coin, made of gold with a picture of the late president Corazon Aquino. and two thousand peso bill, larger that the size of the Philippines bills with the picture of the former president Joseph Estrada. But those money didn't circulate because of its high values.

I collected Philippine currency for many years and I was married to a Filipina. She got everything when we went through divorce. How do I replace everything she got? I have one P2 Piso bill that she missed in crisp uncirculated condition, everything else is gone. I had currency all the way back to the 1960's when I was stationed in the Philippines.

Hi! Thanks for the article.. anyway, @ Sander who said that: "I'm sorry if I have to ask, but what is really the meaning of the little alibata symbol (baybayin) engraved in the different denominations of our current coins? Kindly correct me if I'm wrong. The alibata symbol corresponds to "Pi". I guess it has a deeper meaning/purpose. Thanks.", that alibata means Filipino not Pilipinas as replied by Jeroen.

I think it just stand for "Pilipinas". The new banknotes also spell that name in baybayin now.--Jeroen.
