Philippine Banknotes: 100 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 100 Piso New Generation Currency note.

Just like is predecessor NDS note, this banknote retains its violet color scheme. It features the whale shark, largest fish in the world, on the reverse. Locally called “butanding“, it frequents Philippine waters not only to feed, but to breed as well. The Philippines banned fishing, selling, importing, and exporting of whale sharks and whale shark products since 1998.

Enjoy!
