MANILA, Philippines - Starting next week, the public will see the Philippines’ new generation currency (NGC) bank notes that have the signature of President Rodrigo R. Duterte.
“The notes are ready. The first batch is expected to be released next week after completing the approval and release procedures with the banks,” Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) Governor Amando M. Tetangco Jr. told reporters Wednesday.
Tetangco said all the paper bills, namely P20, P50, P100, P200, P500 and P1,000, with the signature of the new president would be issued next week.
He, however, declined to disclose the number of bank notes with Duterte’s signature that will be issued starting next week.
Duterte’s official term as the country’s Chief Executive started on June 30, 2016.
