The New Philippine One Peso Coin!

Last year, we commemorated the 100 years death anniversary of our national hero Dr. Jose Rizal. And inline with this, the Bangko Sentral Ng Pilipinas released the new one peso coin.

Here is the new Philippine one peso coin as proposed by BSP. Let's take a look on its front and back design below:

This new coin will be 24 mm in diameter and 5.35 grams in weight same as the current one peso coin we have in circulation. The newly minted coin featuring Dr. Jose Rizal portrait and marking of "150 years" 1861 - 2011 on its head, while the new BSP logo on its tail.

BSB dubbed this coin series as the "New Generation" coins. So expect for more new coins like the five peso and ten peso coins to come in the public sooner!

What can you say about this new Philippine one peso design?! Do you like it?! What other suggestions you can make?! c",)
