Philippines new Aquino signature varieties confirmed

On 26 November 2010, the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) started issuing banknotes with the signature of President Benigno S. C. Aquino III, ahead of December’s launch of redesigned note series. The bank stopped producing notes with the signature of former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo when Aquino assumed office last June 30 and the new printing is aimed at shoring up supply. Given the fact that a new series is coming out in less than a month, notes of the old designs with Aquino’s signature may be relatively rare.
