    NEW BANKNOTE Top: Old 100-peso banknote. Bottom: New 100-peso banknote with stronger mauve.

    The central bank said starting Monday, it will be issuing 100-peso banknotes with stronger mauve or violet color but assured the public that the current 100-peso banknotes in circulation can still be used for daily transactions.

    In a statement over the weekend, the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) announced that the issuance of the 100-peso banknotes with stronger mauve color is meant to make it more distinct from the 1000-peso banknotes.

    “This is in response to suggestions from the public to make it easier [for them]to distinguish [the 100-peso banknote]from the 1000-peso banknote,” it said.

    Compared with the current color of the 100-peso banknote in circulation, the new banknote of the same denomination will have stronger mauve or violet color on the obverse and reverse sides, the BSP added.

    It said other features of the 100-peso banknote will remain the same.

    The central bank also gave its assurance that the current 100-peso banknotes can still be used for daily transactions for payment of goods and services and will be in circulation along with the new 100-peso banknotes with stronger mauve or violet color until supplies of the first version last.

    “Henceforth, the BSP will be printing the 100-peso [banknotes]with stronger mauve or violet color,” it said.

    1. what a heck the people in the central bank din not fully study these bank notes just like the coins they circulated, the five centavo coins against ten pesos coins why are these coins have the same diameter. as I remember they had already had bad experience of these same situation the one pesos cons from there they had learn their lesson. As far I now coins should be distinguished by blind person when touching and not only the blinds also the old persons or person with disability regarding sight. Hahahahaha… again they had done this again with the paper bills what a very talented employee, we are these people from the central bank for sure they have good schoolastical records and high degree so this means they as so very qualified so they do not know what to apply their knowledge because they are soo educated. Hahahhaa soo educated with many of them are with master and doctorate decree I REALY DO NOT KNOW ARE THESE MASTERAL AND DOCTORAL AGRE APPLICABLE AND THEY ARE APPLICABLE WITH THEIR CURRENT WORKS any body from there can speak out and tell me if I am cazy of my comments because I have no material neither doctorate because I do not belive on these education to which is applicable to my kareeer.
