The lowdown on the Philippine peso
The Philippines is a former colony of both Spain and later, the Unite States. As a result of the latter, Philippine banknotes and coins were printed in English until 1967. As a result the term ‘Peso’ changed to ‘Piso’ when Filipino was introduced as the official written language. The Philippine peso has come a long way, with bartering and gold rings being changed for coins during the Spanish colonial era of the 16th century. The Central Bank of the Philippines was established in 1949.
