32. Philippine Coins & Money - Part 1

It was from my dad that I got this collecting interest on coins. My dad, a coin collector also, would bring me to coin conventions during the 70s.   My first coin was a large 1903 US Philippine silver coin.  I was fascinated by the inscription on the coin - FILIPINAS on the obverse and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA on the reverse. At that time the Philippines was under the USA government which explains the inscription. 

This was the 1st Philippine coin that I collected.  My dad gave this to me when I was 10 years old.


One of the most interesting things about Philippine coins come from the amount of times that they are changed.  One can easily tell the era it was produced by just looking at the design of a particular coin. Coins are also easier to find, simply because they are known to last longer than paper money.

There are both inexpensive and rare, expensive coins to collect.  Know that you have a wide variety of options in collecting  Philippine coins. One can collect Colonial coins, Spanish Philippine Coins, Philippine American coins, Culion coins, and Philippine Republic coins, you just have to know which particular era would interest you most.

PHILIPPINE COIN HISTORY

The Philippines' first coin was the Penniform Gold Barter Ring that the country adapted. This coin is believed to have been circulated between the eighth and the 14th centuries. Specimens of varisized gold artifacts resembling this type have been recovered from many archaeological sites in Laguna, R izal, Mindoro, Cebu, Leyte and Bohol together with 12th- 14th-century Oriental ceramic tradewares. These gold rings were probably used by the Filipinos' ancestors in trading with the Chinese.

A coin in the form of a small conical gold nugget, called the piloncito, appeared next. On its flat base was an embossed inscription, which some scholars say is the character Ma, or the letter M, in the ancient Tagalog script.

With the Spaniards, who arrived in the early 16th century, came the coins of Spain and Mexico. Local currency took in the minted cobs of various polygonal shapes, known locally as hilis kalamay, the round- milled coins that bore portraits of Spanish monarchs, and the beautiful Mexican silver Pillar Dollar, or Dos Mundos, which were predominantly used in many parts of the world. The Dos Mundos was highly regarded for the integrity of its silver content and weight. The barilla is believed to have been the first coin struck in the Philippines. This was a crude brass coin approximately equivalent to one centavo. Available specimens show the inscription on the outer edge - Barilla, Ano de 1728 - and the coat of arms of the City of Manila in the inner circle.

Small Wonder


In 1766 a second type of barilla, made of copper, about half the size of the first Spanish barilla, appeared. The Tagalog, like the Mexicans, pronounced the double / as y, and small coins, or change, came to be known as barya.

Other coins used in the country between 1782 and 1835 were varieties of the octavo and the quarto, bearing the names of Spanish rulers and the coat of arms of Spain. Eight octavos, or four quartos, were equivalent to one real; and the eight reales equaled one peso.

After 1810 a variety of new coins struck by the colonies of Spain in Central and South America that became the independent states of Mexico, Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina reached the Philippines through the galleon trade.      The Spanish authorities in Manila feared the possible effects of these coins on the Filipinos and tried to stamp out traces of their origin. Governor General Mariano Ricafort on October  13, 1828, decreed that all coins from the insurgent colonies be counter- struck on the obverse side with Spain's coat of arms and at the center of the reverse side with the inscription Manila and, underneath, 1828. The Manila overstrike continued until 1830.

In 1832 the new counterstamp was in the form of a small circular depression within which was a crown of pearls and the initials F. 7°, for King Ferdinand VII. This counter- mark was changed to Y. " upon the accession of Ferdinand's daughter Queen Isabella II in 1834. The counterstamping was stopped by an edict on March 31, 1837, when Spain began to recognize her former Latin American colonies as independent states.

During the reign of Queen Isabella II a royal mint was established in Manila. It was founded pursuant to a decree issued in 1857, but mint operations did not begin until 1861. One of the officials was Don Antonio Garcia, whose grandson was the late  Adolfo Garcia, a prewar engraver. 


The Philippine mint initially struck four-peso, two-peso and one-peso gold coins bearing the bust of Queen Isabella II and on the reverse side the inscription FILIPINAS.By 1864 the mint produced silver coins of minor denominations - 50, I, 20 and ten centavos de peso, with  portraits of Queen Isabella II and  later of King Alfonso XII. The  Alfonso XII coins were not liked by  the people and the government had  to resume the minting of the lsabelinas. Some of these were dated 1868, although lsabelinas were coined from 1886 until the coming of the Americans, in 1898.

The Philippine mint did not, however, strike any coins of the eight-reales size. Some six million silver pesos were struck in the Madrid mint for exclusive use in the Philippines. The 1897 UN PESO bore the profile of the young Alfonso XIII, with the reverse side marked  ISLAS FILIPINAS.

The Spanish-American war caused the abrupt termination of Alfonso's rule over the Philippines. As a result the 1897 large-peso coins were circulated only until 1904. U.S. Civil Governor William H. Taft declared the large peso no longer legal tender after September 30 of that year.

Rebel Coinage 


The Philippine Insurrection in 1896 resulted in the proclamation of the First Philippine Republic on June 12,1898. General Emilio Aguinaldo, who was elected president, immediately took steps to adopt a national coinage and currency system. Existing specimens reveal two different types of two centimos de peso made of copper, reportedly struck in the military arsenal in Malolos, Bulacan, in 1899. With the surrender of General Aguinaldo these were withdrawn from circulation and declared illegal. 


When the United States of America conquered the Philippines at the turn of the century an orderly monetary system was instituted for the country by an act of the U.S. Congress, approved on March 2, 1903.

The act provided for the minting of silver one-peso coins and smaller denominations of 50, 20 and ten centavos. The U.S. - Filipinas coins were designed by Melecio Figueroa, a Filipino 'artist living in California, and struck in the U.S. Bureau of the Mint. The silver coins minted between 1903 and 1906 contained .900 fine silver. The price of silver rose sharply in 1906, resulting in the reduction from 1907 to 1912 of peso pieces to .800 fine silver, with diminished size and weight. The minor coins were reduced to .750 fine silver.

The continued rise in silver prices eventually resulted in a complete halt of silver-peso coinage. The copper-nickel five-centavo, the bronze one-centavo, and the bronze half-centavo coins were not altered. The half-centavo coins soon became unnecessary and were permanently removed from circulation by March 1904. The blanks and the remaining idle pieces were recoined into one-centavo pieces.

All U.S. - Philippine coins of regular issue were minted in the United States until 1919. In 1920, 1921 and 1922 minor coins were struck in the Manila mint. In 1923 and 1924 no coins were struck. Then the Manila mint reopened in 1925. All regular commemorative issues were struck with the mint-mark M until 1941, when the Manila mint was destroyed by the Japanese forces. All coins made between 1944 and 1946 were again manufactured in the U.S. mints in San Francisco, Philadelphia and Denver.

The U.S. - Philippine coins continued to be in use even after the Philippines gained her independence from America, in 1946. The new coins for the Republic of the Philippines were struck in the Philadelphia mint in 1958 to replace the worn-out small-size Central Bank notes. The design on the obverse side of the U.S. - Philippine coin was adopted, while the reverse side carried the Republic's coat of arms. A new 25-centavo coin was substituted for the 20-centavo piece, while the one-, five-, ten- and 50-centavo coins were made approximately the same sizes as those of their U.S. counterparts. Subsequent issues of the minor Republic coins were manufactured annually from 1959 to 1963 by the U.S. Bureau of the Mint. The Royal Mint of England minted the 1964 issues. In 1966 the coins were struck by the Vereinigte Deutsche Mettalwerke, in Alpena, West Germany. 


Major changes came about with the growing nationalism in the country. In 1967 and 1968 the Filipinization movement affected even the Republic's coinage and currency system. The new coins in Filipino are in denominations of one sentimo (centavo), five, ten, 25 and 50 sentimos, with the obverse sides bearing the portraits of Filipino heroes-Lapulapu, Melchora Aquino, Francisco Baltazar, Juan Luna and Marcelo H. del Pilar. The reverse side of each coin bears the seal of the Republic of the Philippines at the center, inscribed with REPUBLIKA NG PILIPINAS along the edge. The first four minor coins are dated 1967, but the 50 sentimos bears the date 1968. 


Foreign Mints

These coins were manufactured annually until 1972 by the U.S.Bureau of the Mint. In 1972 an additional 20,000,000 of the 50 sentimos were made by the Chartered Industries of Singapore. Although there is no plan to retire the coins with the inscriptions in English that are currently in circulation, the Pilipino coins are expected to replace them eventually. It is interesting to note that after the last U.S.-Philippine silver-peso coin was issued, in 1912, 60 years passed before the reappearance of another silver-peso coin. On July 3, 1972, the Central Bank of the Philippines officially put into circulation a new silver 1 Piso (One Peso, in Pilipino) coin, bearing the profile of Jose Rizal. The new silver-peso coins were made by the U.S. Bureau  of the Mint.

When President Ferdinand E. Marcos issued Presidential Decree No. 168, on April 2, 1973, he called 


for the replacement and demonetization of the Pilipino currency-note issue of the Central Bank of the Philippines outstanding as of July 1, 1973. These notes were to be exchanged with notes overprinted with the legend ANG BAGONG LlPUNAN on the watermarked portion. No more 1 Piso bills have been re-issued with the "New Society" currency.  Only the 1 Piso silver coins remain in use.   By D. TANTOCO, Jr.

  1. Thank you for the much appreciated information, I am a collector myself (well, part time due to obligations with my studies)and I never really took much interest in the Philippine coinage before going through your posts. I am currently based in London so I know little about how things go back in the Philippines in terms of numismatics and the like, are there any hard or soft copy catalogs or books specifically regarding Philippine coins and notes? thank you

  4. Hi Derek, my great grandma gave me a coin that reads Senor Patriarca San Jose dated 1001.
    In the front of the coin is San Jose(St. Joseph). On the lower left is the sun with human face and the lower right is the first quarter moon with 5 stars. In the top most back of the coin is a triangle encased in a sun with initials T.D and Y.D.. In the middle is an angel with a trumpet and in the bottom part are crosses and the date 1001. I have been keeping this for 20 years now and I really do not know if this has value or just one of those coins. I searched every site in the internet but has found no answers. Maybe you can help me.

    1. Hi, Based on your description that is an amulet (anting-anting). The maker of that amulet used the 8 reales Mexican coins to make those. I have seen that before. Email me at lumang.gamit@yahoo.com so I can show you similar coins that were struck and made into amulets.

  10. I have a 1903s One Peso coin. It has a small what seems to be Japanese character stamped into the front of the coin next to the word ONE. Can you please tell me if this had to do with the Japanese occupation and what the value of this coin might be? Thank you.

    1. Hi Alex, Most probably that is a Chinese chopmark and not Japanese. Back then Chinese traders put chopmarks on our 1903-1905 1 Peso coins to indicate these coins are silver and genuine, because at that time these coins are being counterfeited.

  20. Hi there,

    My name is Angelo. I have an 1877 coin which states "Trade Coin". I wonder what does this mean. Would appreciate if you could lecture me on this. If its worth any value, I plan to sell the said coin, together with my 1908 One Peso coin, 1917, 1918, 1921, 1944 and 1945 Fifty Centavos. How much is the value all in all? Many Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The 1877 US trade dollar is worth around 3,600 or more depending on the condition.

      The 1907 & 1908 US-Philippine peso is worth around 550-600. Prices may change depending on the current silver price and the condition of the coin

      Trade coins are coins minted by a government, but not necessarily current within the territory of the issuing country. These quasi bullion coins (in rarer cases small change) were thus actually export goods - that is, bullion in the form of coins, used to bulk buy important goods from other countries, where they could be bought at a favourable price, compared to the purchasing power of the same amount of bullion within the trade coins' country of origin.

  76. Hi,

    Would you be kind enough as to take a look at my coin photos featured in my blog (www.jerrysitems.wordpress.com) so you could tell me if they are genuine or fake? They are part of the heirlooms given by a close relation and I am thinking of disposing them of. Thanks.

  88. Hi!
    I understand that this post talks about Old Phil. coins & banknotes, I wonder if you could help me look for articles from the net about antique Phil. bottles. I've been searching religiously; sadly, I couldn't find any.

    Perhaps, Sir Pinoy Kollektor could extend his expertise about "lumang gamit" and stuffs.

    I appreciate all the help.

  96. I have a one peso coin, PROBABLY CIRCULATED IN 2011 (this is not the Jose Rizal commemorative coin...

    we noticed that the words REPUBLIKA NG PILIPINAS does not show on the coin, although Rizal's Face show. On the reverse side of it, the logo is seen but the words Bangko Sentral Ng Pilipinas is nowhere to be found. The coin does not show any scratches just to erase them. Looks like a coin error to me.

    In this case is it worth anything?
