Philippines - New series of coins by 2017

Binay asks BSP to temporarily halt rollout of new P5 coins

Gaea Katreena Cabico

MANILA, Philippines — Sen. Nancy Binay on Wednesday urged the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas to put on hold the issuance of the redesigned P5 coins, citing the New Generation Currency coins create confusion among the public.

Binay said the new P5 coins do not only confuse the public but they also impact small business.

"It's best to keep an eye on those new P5 coins lalo na doon sa mga nanunukli ng barya sa tricycle, jeep, tindahan at mga maliliit na negosyo," Binay said.

She noted that some mistook the new P5 coins with P1 coins, which are closely similar in size.

The new silver P5 coins feature Andres Bonifacio on the obverse, replacing Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo who is featured in the old design still in circulation.

The reverse side of the coins features Tayabak, an endemic plant in the Philippines that climbs tall forest trees.

Binay noted that the ordinary Filipinos are the ones who will be inconvenienced by the circulation of NGC series.

"We welcome the new and fresh designs of the NGC. But did the Numismatic Committee ever consider the behavioral change it will create and the possibility of confusion between the merchants and the public?" she said.

Philstar.com sought for BSP's comment on the matter but it is yet to reply to the request.

BSP has been rolling out the new P5 coins since December. It was unveiled a day before the commemoration of the 154th birth anniversary of the Bonifacio.

BSP said the rest of the NGC Coin Series will be released for circulation in January 2018.

Central Bank of the Philippines commented on the worries of Binay that can be seen in the message above that the confusion between the old P1 coin and the new P5 coin is unavoidable. BSP Deputy Governor Diwa Guinigundo rejected the appeal to stop the circulating of the new P5 coins, saying an information campaign “will not be effective because the public needs to see and hold and use the New Generation Currency (NGC) coins.” They also said they have a nationwide public information campaign through social media as well as print and broadcast media.

Although her request was rejected Binay today urged the Central Bank once more to delay the issuance of the new coins until April. She asks for a 4-month information campaign to avoid confusion. Certainly also for senior citizens and people with low vision issues. Furthermore she mentioned the ticket vending machines of public transport will not accept the new coins for at least the next 3 months as they have not been updated yet.

The other coins of the new generation are sheduled to be released January 18.

The new 1 peso coin has not been released officially but we can now know how it looks, thanks to this article: http://8list.ph/icymi-theres-a-new-p5-coin-and-the-internet-isnt-pleased/

The new coin will be smaller, thicker and heavier than the current one, but still keep it silver color. With this 2 mm difference between 1 peso and 5 pesos coins I'm starting to think that the P10 coin (26,5 mm) won't be changed...let's see.


Best,

A tobacco plant appears on the reverse of the 5 piso coin. How about the 1 piso coin?

I can't see well. José Rizal will appear again on the 1 peso coin, but with different portrait.

It looks like some kind of lion head. Or maybe it's a map of an island.

Looks like some plant with name "Waing Waing". To me it appears to be something like lettuce.

I think that Tayabak is not a tobacco plant but Strongylodon macrobotrys.

The image is not very clear, perhaps waling-waling (Vanda sanderiana)?

New coin series unveiled.
http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/978192/watch-bsp-teaser-video-shows-new-generation-coins

The new series includes coins of:
10 piso (0,15€)
5 piso (0,08€)
1 piso (0,015€)
25 centavos (0,003€)  :o
5 centavos (0,0007€)  :o  :o
1 centavo (0,0001€)  :o  :o  :o

I know that the value of the money is not the same in every country, but I think that the value of 1 centavo coin is "too much".

The 10 piso coin will be no longer bimetallic. I can understand this decision.

Best,

Jostein

1, 5 and 25 Sentimo coins are being issued to complete the legal requirements.
Similar change is expected in Thailand set to be announced shortly. Satang coins will be issued to complete the set and 10 Baht may no longer remain Bimetallic.

Set completion is legal requirement in many countries like Saudi Arabia, Finland, Netherlands, Italy, Belgium, Ireland etc. The smaller denominations ( Halala/1  & 2 cents etc) are not issued for circulation but are issued in sets.
