Philippine Banknotes: 2012 100 Peso Free Masons Overprint
This banknote is rather new and very abundant. I came across over 5 of these in the past month and I wasn’t even trying. I keep 2 in my album and I have replaced them once already. My first two were quite folded in a couple off places, but luckily a friend of mine got new crisp bills straight from the bank and he immediately asked me if i wanted to replace his new Free Masons overprints and I accepted the offer. I replaced the folded bills in my album and spent the older ones.
I have no idea what this organization does, but this overprint commemorates their centennial which tells me they have been around for quite a while. The “G” in their logo stands for God. This fact I knew since elementary since our central school back home had a huge version of this logo on their stage backdrop. Of course it wasn’t as elaborate as the one on the overprint. It was similar to the logo below.
The design of the logo is very detailed and intricate. Best overprint I own so far.
