A new set of Philippine peso bills were released by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas. It still has the same famous Filipinos, except for the 500 peso bill that added President Cory alongside with his husband Ninoy.
What I like most about these new bank notes are the pictures at the back. It now features Philippines' iconic natural wonders and popular tourist attractions such as:
-Banaue Rice Terraces alongside the Palm Civet (20 pesos)
-Taal Lake and the Giant trevally fish (50 pesos)
-Mayon Volcano in Albay and the whale shark (100 pesos)
-Chocolate Hills in Bohol and the Philippine tarsier (200 pesos)
-Subterranean Underground River in Puerto Princesa, Palawan and the Blue-naped Parrot (500 pesos)
-Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park and the South Sea pearl (1000 pesos)
Current banknotes will remain legal tender for at least three years.
