Philippine Banknotes: New Design 10 Peso Banknote

The 10 peso banknote of the New Design series, later called BSP series, has undergone quite a few changes. From the changing of the BSP logo to the addition of Andres Bonifacio on the banknote. As far as I know, this banknote remains legal tender, but BSP has stopped printing this because of the introduction of the 10 Peso coin. The hero, Andres Bonifacio was added because in 1995, the 2 peso coin where Andres Bonifacio was featured was demonetized. He was then added to the 10 peso bill, and later the 10 peso coin. Personally, I think it would have been  better if he was placed on a higher denomination like the 200 peso bill.

If I am not mistaken, the image of the signing of the Katipuneros came from the Bagong Lipunan 5 peso banknote.

This is perhaps the banknote with the most revisions from the New Design series banknotes. These remain legal tender, but no longer printer by Bangko Sentral thus making these banknotes quite collectible nowadays.

When we were kids, we use to look for the number 630 and a cat at the back of the older banknote. Can you find these?
