Back in the Philippines, there will be new peso bills to be circulated. The bills are "updated" and the design looks fresh. They included a number of security features to prevent counterfeiting bills.
The surprising part was former President Cory Aquino is now together with Ninoy Aquino in the P500 bill. See the image after the jump.
