This coin is for sale at Bangko Sentral Ng Pilipinas with certificate of authenticity. I didn’t ask for the price since I already own one. Although it has no COA, its still a cool coin. Coin dealers sell this coin for 50 Pesos. 10 million coins were minted in 2011 for circulation. It is made from nickel-plated steel.

Thanks to my friend, Worthy Habla, for giving me this coin.

Enjoy!
