That's the Rizal monument in Manilla. See also this message. To the Japanese military, Rizal was a symbol of unjust, oppressive colonialism, supporting their own "co-prosperity" idea. Rizal being dead, and thereby unable to dispute that claim, came in handy too.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
