The Governor of the Central Bank of the Philippines has now officially announced that the 20 piso note will become a coin. A prototype of the new coin is ready. The Central Bank hopes to be able to release it in general circulation in December, before the Christmas period.

Old series had 10 Piso as bimetallic coin.
New series has done away with that.

I expect the 20 Piso as bimetallic since they can not let go the bimetallic blank making equipment go waste.
Perhaps both core and ring will become plated steel.

It seems the new 20-piso coin won't come alone, the news also speaks a new version of the 5-piso coin to be issued in December, it seems that it will be scalloped or spanish flower in shape. Fingers crossed for a bimetallic P20 coin.
