Philippine Banknotes: 1000 Piso New Generation Currency

2010 was when Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) rolled out the New Generation Currency (NGC) notes. 2007 was the year the new notes were conceptualized. It was to replace the New Design Series (NDS) notes that are in circulation since 1985. As of this date, BSP has stopped printing the New Design Series notes and will be completely demonetized by 2017.

The New Generation Currency notes feature the same heroes in the obverse. On the reverse, prominent, iconic, and historical places in the country, instead of events and buildings in the NDS notes. BSP was very keen in adding new security features never before seen in Philippine currency.

The color theme for each note remains the same from the NDS notes. Orange for the 20 Pesos, red for the 50, violet for the 100, green for 200, yellow for 500, and blue for the 1000 Pesos.

Featured here is the 1000 peso New Generation Currency note.

The 1000 Piso note is probably the most colorful, local banknote the country has ever seen because of the myriad of colors used for the picture of Tubbataha Reef on the reverse. It retains the blue theme color from the NDS 1000 Piso note.

Enjoy!
