This section is a step-by-step process in designing the Philippine peso banknotes. One highlight here is the prototype design of the 500-peso bill, one with Ninoy Aquino and the other with Ferdinand Marcos. #buhayurban #aroundthemetro #roadscape #manila #malate #bsp #bangkosentralngpilipinas

The Centennial year commemorative banknotes. #buhayurban #aroundthemetro #roadscape #manila #malate #bsp #bangkosentralngpilipinas

This is the first banknotes issued by the BSP from 1949 to 1969, spanning Elpidio Quirino to Ferdinand Marcos. And it's in English. #buhayurban #aroundthemetro #roadscape #manila #bsp #malate #bangkosentralngpilipinas

The busts of former BSP governors are arranged chronologically according to the years they served. Unfortunately, current governor Nestor Espenilla's bust has yet to be cast. #buhayurban #aroundthemetro #roadscape #manila #malate #bsp #bangkosentralngpilipinas

We've reached the Philippine Medals section. Plus a look at the busts of the first two BSP governors Miguel Cuaderno Sr. and Andres Castillo. #buhayurban #aroundthemetro #roadscape #manila #malate #bsp #bangkosentralngpilipinas

And now the New Generation banknotes. Unfortunately there is no display of the new coins that were released this year. #buhayurban #aroundthemetro #roadscape #bsp #manila #malate #bangkosentralngpilipinas

Some special edition banknotes, again to commemorate special events in Philippine history. #buhayurban #aroundthemetro #roadscape #manila #malate #bsp #bangkosentralngpilipinas

This is the New Design series which was introduced during the last years of Ferdinand Marcos' presidency. Unfortunately they have yet to display the recently devalued banknotes (aka the BSP series which was a variation of this set) that were introduced in the mid-late 90s (this includes the previous generation coins that are still legal tender today). #buhayurban #aroundthemetro #roadscape #manila #malate #bsp #bangkosentralngpilipinas

Next is the Ang Bagong Lipunan banknotes which were used during the Martial Law years. #buhayurban #aroundthemetro #roadscape #manila #malate #bsp #bangkosentralngpilipinas

The Pilipino Series banknotes which began under Ferdinand Marcos. #buhayurban #aroundthemetro #roadscape #manila #malate #bsp #bangkosentralngpilipinas

A display of commemorative coins to pay tribute to special events in Philippine history. #buhayurban #aroundthemetro #roadscape #manila #malate #bsp #bangkosentralngpilipinas

Next is a look at how the use of currency in the Philippines evolved from pre-colonial times to the Japanese occupation. #buhayurban #aroundthemetro #roadscape #manila #malate #bsp #bangkosentralngpilipinas

A little flashback to Filipino and history class to begin the trip, where money evolved from seashells to coins and bills. #buhayurban #aroundthemetro #roadscape #manila #malate #bsp #bangkosentralngpilipinas

Some introductory information on the BSP Museum. It was a fairly young edifice, only 19 years old to that point. #buhayurban #aroundthemetro #roadscape #manila #malate #bsp #bangkosentralngpilipinas

Finally made it through the BSP Museum. Again, tight security greets visitors which is why you need to sign up and if you have bags better store it inside the lockers. #buhayurban #aroundthemetro #roadscape #manila #malate #bsp #bangkosentralngpilipinas
