Here’s something to expect next year: a photo of a nude man overprinted on the Philippine 100-peso bill.
Money collectors will now have something to await for.
If only all UP Students were rich, I guess this is a very good piece of memorabilia that all UP students and alumni must have. Sadly, not everyone can get a hold of a hundred pesos these days. Sana sa piso na lang nilagay?
Also, did you know that according to this website, on UP’s Diamond Jubilee (75 years) Anniversary in 1983, a special 100-peso bill was also released. The details are as follows:
· OBVERSE: Image of the Oblation statue flanked by two U.P. buildings; border inscription “PAMANTASAN NG PILIPINAS” (upper) and “1908-1983” (lower)
· REVERSE: Seal of the Republic of the Philippines; border inscription “REPUBLIKA NG PILIPINAS” (upper) and “100 PISO” (lower)
· Denomination: 100 Pesos
· Quality: Proof
· Composition: Silver (500/1000), Copper (500/1000)
· Diameter: 38.0 mm
· Coin Weight: 25.0 grams
· Shape: Round
· Edge: Milled
· Mintage: 2,000 pieces
· Minted By: Royal Mint (Llantrisant, Wales, UK)
· Year of Issue: 1983
So I guess this won’t be the first time a naked man will be featured in our money. Haha. Anyone born in or before 1983 who has this? Care to share?
Sidenote: I’m cooking up something related to UP’s centennial that will need the help of every Iskolar ng Bayan. I hope it’ll push through. =)
