Philippine peso currency award

Ok, so lets get out of the excitement from Battlefield 3 for a bit and here is an article I found which is pretty interesting..well interesting for me that is.

Did you know that the new Philippine currency pesos has been judged as one of the best currency series series in the world by the International Association of Currency Affars (Iaca).

According to the Philippine Daily Inquirer:

The set of new peso notes, called the “New Generation Currency (NGC)” series, was one of two finalists for best new currencies in the world in a worldwide contest organized by the International Association of Currency Affairs

Though the new pesos was recalled because of two mistakes, that didn’t stop it for having an award:

The critics said the new peso notes had errors in design, and urged the BSP to recall the series.Some of the errors cited were the allegedly inaccurately designed Philippine map and the wrong color used for the beak of the blue-naped parrot featured in the 500 peso note.

It was said to be an artist rendition.  You can read more about this by click here.

In my opinion, those new bills were pretty awesome. They were really bright in color and really nice to look at. Though I only saw bills of the 50 pesos and a 20 pesos which were red and orange, they were still beautiful to look at.
