Here is the BSP news release everyone is talking about. Have any members of this newsgroup seen these yet? This marks the first time the Bank's new seal is being used on a coin.

Media Releases
BSP to Issue One-Piso Commemorative Rizal Coin in December

12.09.2011


The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) will issue this December a one-piso legal tender coin commemorating the 150th birth anniversary of national hero Dr. Jose Rizal which the country celebrated last June 19, 2011. Rizal was executed at Bagumbayan, now Luneta, on 30 December 1896 which ushered in the Philippine Revolution against Spain.

The face of the coin will feature the portrait of the hero and the markings, “150 years,” “Republika ng Pilipinas” and “1861-2011.” Etched on the reverse side are the new BSP seal, “1-piso” and “2011.”

BSP will produce 10 million pieces of the round, grayish, nickel-plated steel coin which has the same size (24-millimeters in diameter) and weight (5.35 grams) as the one-piso coin currently in circulation.

The Office of the President and BSP’s Monetary Board have both approved the issuance of the coin.

Last June 17, 2011, BSP also paid tribute to Dr. Rizal through the exhibit, “Rizal in Our Midst: A Homage to Greatness,” which showcased coins and banknotes ranging from five centavos to 100 pesos since 1903 where Rizal’s image or monument appears.

Hi everyone!

I saw a set (2011) at World Treasures in SM Megamall.
It includes the Rizal 150 Years coin.
It also includes all the current coins we have in circulation (2011).
It looks like it is on a hard folder with descriptions and metallic contents of the coins.
It is priced at 2000 php.


Here are my questions:
1) Where can I buy one? I don't want to buy at SM because it is expensive.
2) Anyone have any idea if BSP sells them? Taft/Quezon Ave branch? The BSP website is not updated yet.

The image clearly shows this is a medal, not a coin. A work of art. Yes, it is a beautiful tribute to a great hero. But I am waiting to see more about the one piso coin.

I believe its only 500php @ BSP

Thanks! Is it still available?
I went there 3 months ago but it was not offered to me.
Maybe I need to ask for it?
Any thoughts?

2000php is too expensive for me for just a batch set of 2011 coins.
