New Philippine Peso Bills | Pictures

Earlier today, December 16, 2010, the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) officially launched the redesigned Philippine Bank Notes at the Ceremonial Hall in Malacañang. President Benigno Aquino III, the keynote speaker of the event, called the new Philippine Peso bills as “a portrait of changing times and of the enduring tapestry of our history”.
