Philippines considers adding Cory to 500-piso note

Following the 1 August 2009 death of former president Corazon “Cory” Aquino, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) is considering adding her portrait to the 500-piso (US$10.50) note which has featured a portrait of her husband and former Senator Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr. since 20 August 1987. If approved, the new note would be available in the last quarter of 2010.
