Here’s something to expect next year: a photo of a nude man overprinted on the Philippine 100-peso bill.

Photo courtesy of Philippine Money. This is not the actual bill, but a mere speculation. Overprints are usually placed on this white space of the bill, according to PhilMoney.

Of course, I think I got you there. What’s to be printed really is a photo of the University of the Philippines‘ Oblation Statue in commemoration of its 100th founding anniversary in 2008.

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. =)

    Nope, no UP centennial shirt. UP Special Commemorative plate is available, though.

    Wanna collaborate? I’m gonna need help from UP-ans on this one eh. =)

    @yoshke Onga eh! feels so good to be a UP-an even more. =P

    I think that 100 peso bill for the diamond jubilee is actually a 100 peso coin. I’m trying to find one but can’t.

    The 100 peso bills with oblation will be sold uncut for collectors. That means, there will be 32 pieces of 100 peso bills on a single sheet. Gosh.. that’s a lot of money. Nevertheless, banknotes for circulation will still bear the overprint.

    Anyway, here in UP Visayas, we’ve been selling centennial shirts since last A.Y. It’s just a plain white shirt with the centennial logo.
