53. Philippine GOLD BANKNOTES


GOLD is the most desired metal on earth since the ancient times of pharaohs in Egypt.  Biblical King Solomon had a legendary gold mine, making him the richest ruler in the world in 930 BC.  There is a saying that “The one who has the Gold rules the World” that is why so many nations want to control the supply of Gold in the world.  The price of these precious metals has gone up steadily over the past few years making it a good investment.  

We have seen Philippine gold coins but not a gold banknote.  Over the years I have seen only 2 Philippine banknotes made of gold – the 1949, 50 Pesos English Series   and the 1998, 1000 Pesos ERAP Commemorative banknote.

These notes are made of 23 carat gold foil.  Here are the two fine specimen Philippine gold banknotes.   

50 Pesos English Series featuring Gen. Antonio Luna on the obverse and the Blood Compact at the reverse.
Signed by President Quirino and Central Bank Governor Cuaderno.  999.9 GOLD 


This gold note was given by President Joseph "ERAP" Estrada to his close friends and supporters when he was Inaugurated as President of  Philippines in 1998.  It comes with a special presentation box

1000 Pesos / MARAMING SALAMAT ERAP / GOLD.999

  1. Hi,
    Some typo. The vignette on the P50.00 gold is Antonio Luna not Juan. Nice collection Ed.
