Philippine Coins: 1995 5 Peso New BSP Series

In 1995, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas started minting the new BSP series coins. They ranged from 1 Sentimo (Centavo) to 5 Piso (Pesos). It wasn’t until 2000 that the 10 Peso coin was minted and became part of the series. In this post i will be featuring the 5 Peso coin. This is the third 5 peso coin that I know of that went in circulation. Like the previous five peso coin and banknote, this coin features Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo.

“1993 is not the mintage year.”
“This coin has a scalloped border on both sides.”
“Its metallic composition, nickel-brass, hasn’t changed since its first mintage in 1995.”

Trivia: Some of the 5 peso coins with year mark 1997 and 1998 were minted at the Royal Canadian Mint. Which means some of our coins are imported. How do you know that the coin you have is from the Royal Canadian Mint? Check the link below.
