Description

The Philippine peso is the official currency of the Philippines. The official currency symbol: ₱. The currency’s name is also known by its Filipino name, “piso”. The Philippine peso is derived from the Spanish peso, which were imported in huge quantities from Spain by Manila galleons from the 16th to 19th centuries. In 1852, the “Banco Español Filipino de Isabel II” issued the first Philippines banknotes in denominations of 10, 25, 50 and 200 “pesos fuertes”. Almost fifty years later, the American Colonial Insular Government introduced silver certificates in denominations of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100 and 500 pesos. These certificates were complemented by banknotes issued by the Bank of the Philippines in 1908, banknotes issued by the Philippine National Bank in 1916, and Treasury Certificates issued by the Philippine Treasury in 1918, all of which were backed by US Treasury bonds. After the Philippines achieved independence in 1946, only the latter remained legal tender.

In 1949, the Philippine Central Bank took over the issuance of paper money and introduced the first notes that were printed under US rule and were certified by the Treasury. The regular issue English Series banknotes in values of 5, 10, 20, and 50 cents, 1 peso, 2 pesos, 5 pesos, 10 pesos, 20 pesos, 50 pesos, 100 pesos, 200 pesos, and 500 pesos were introduced in 1951. In 1967, the Philippine Central Bank adopted the Filipino language on its Pilipino Banknote Series, and in the following year, introduced the Pilipino Series of notes in denominations of 1, 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 piso. The Ang Bagong Lipunan Series was introduced in 1973 and included 2 piso notes. In 1985, The Philippine Central Bank introduced a new series of banknotes. The 1000 piso note were introduced in 1991, followed by the 200 piso note in 2002. The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) announced in 2009 that it had begun a significant makeover of current banknotes and coins to increase security and durability. In December 2010, the BSP began issuing the first batch of new banknotes.

The 50 Philippines piso leu note front design features the portrait of Sergio Osmeña (1878 – 1961), was a Filipino politician who served as the fourth president of the Philippines from 1944 to 1946. The background illustrates the First Philippine Assembly in 1907 and the representation of the Battle of Leyte through several soldiers marching in the Pacific campaign of World War II. The design is completed with the National Coat of Arms and the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) logo.

The reverse of the note illustrates the giant trevally or Maliputo and the Taal Lake, also known as Bombón Lake (located in the province of Batangas), in the background. The design is completed with a sketch of the giant trevally and the map of the Philippines showing the location of Taal Lake. The lettering of the note is presented in the Filipino language. This note is part of the 2020 series, and its color is red on a multicolor underprint.
