Philippine Banknotes: 2011 100 Peso De La Salle Overprint

In 2011, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas released the De La Salle University 100th year anniversary overprint.

Since the schools color is green, it is just fitting to do the overprint in green ink. This overprint is fairly new and there are a lot of these in circulation.

“100”
“DeLaSalle”
“1911*2011”
“100 YEARS OF LASALLIAN PRESENCE IN THE PHILIPPINES”

A running gag about the overprint in the collectors community is that its related to Star Wars. Look closely, you will see Darth Vader raising his hand or light saber and there is a storm trooper behind him. I found it funny because it does resemble characters from star wars.

Enjoy!
