Time for a Throwback: Here's Everything That Came Before That New P20 Coin

Who else remembers those old, huge one-peso coins?


(SPOT.ph) 2020 is bringing in a new P20 coin, and while we welcome the pun potential, the same can't be said for the eventual decommissioning of every ninong and ninang's favorite banknote. The P20 coin is set to replace the crisp orange bill and is slated for circulation during the first few months of 2020. Before you catch your first glimpse of it IRL, you may want to take a trip down memory lane and see all the coins that went before.


A lot of coins have passed through our hands since the 20th century. From those extra-large, one-peso Jose Rizal coins, to the curvy-edged, five-centavo Melchora Aquino coins, to the overly sleek, five-peso Andres Bonifacio coins of today, a lot has changed. The upcoming P20 coin isn't the first time we've been thrown into confusion over coins and it certainly won't be the last either. Are you ready for the changes ahead?
