Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas has released a new 10 Piso coin under the New Generation Currency series  as a replacement to the New BSP Series 10 Piso coin.

Though the coin has 2017 on it, I have only seen and held the coin later in 2018 at around March. These coins may have been minted in 2017, but released only in 2018.

Philippine Banknotes: 1942 One Centavo Japanese Invasion Money

•March 25, 2018 • 2 Comments

The Empire of Japan occupied the Philippines from 1942 to 1945. It was during these years that the Japanese government declared a monopoly of the issueance of money. Starting sometime in 1942 new banknotes were released by the Second Philippine Republic under President Jose P. Laurel. These were formally known as Japanese government-issued Philippine peso. Many Filipinos call the currency Mickey Mouse Money.

Denominations released in 1942 are 1 Centavo, 5 Centavos, 10 Centavos, 50 Centavos, 1 Peso, 5 Pesos, and 10 Pesos. In later years until 1945 100 Pesos, 500 Pesos, and 1000 Pesos were added due to hyperinflation.

Featured here is the One Centavo banknote.
