Rizal @ 150 Celebrated with One Peso Commemorative Coins


It was December of 2011 when I first heard that the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) would come up with new one-peso coins commemorating the 150th birth anniversary of the Philippine national hero Jose Rizal. But it was only today that I actually saw one when a coworker gave me two pieces. Although these are commemorative coins, I believe that they would be in full circulation too.

The obverse side shows an image of Jose Rizal with his face in full view. The image, I think, is taken from his last studio shot in Madrid, Spain. The tails side shows a new design/logo of BSP.

For starting coin collectors, it would be good to keep a few clean and blemish-free copies of these coins.
