2004 Philippines 25 Sentimos

Do you have a Filipino coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment

Back in the early days of this blog I found my last Filipino coin. Now about six years later I find another of their coins in my change. What a refreshing break from North American finds, not that there is anything wrong with them. Finding coins from really far off lands is just a bit nicer.

Obverse: The true date 2004 and the value, REPUBLIKA NG PILIPINAS.
Reverse: BANGKO SENTRAL NG PILIPINAS - 1993 (the bank or series date) with the bank seal inside a gear.
The color is real dark and spotted with rust. Originally it would be a nice golden color. It looks like an old cent although it feels like a nickel so I can only guess how it ended up circulating.

The coin itself will probably be confusing to some since it has the two dates. 1993 is the bank seal date or simply the bank date. Putting the bank date on money is a common practice in many countries because it shows that the coin is backed by the current bank. Most likely previous banks collapsed or lost their ratings so if it happens again they can swiftly devalue the old money. On the other hand if the Central Bank stays strong then this date only boosts confidence since each year that passes reminds people that their bank is old and established.

I will admit at first I thought I found a 1993 coin since the reverse was sharper then the front but seeing it in the light I realized it was 2004.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 25 Sentimos / Philippines
Year: 2004
Mintage: Unknown.
Metal: Brass Plated Steel
Value: $0.10 in VF

Not bad maybe it is very-fine or higher, it is an average value based on the fine (F-12) grade.

I think you did good.
