As a former colony of the United States, the country used English on its currency with the word “peso” appearing on notes and coinage until 1967. Since the adaptation of the Filipino language for banknotes and coins, the term “piso” is now used. When entering the Philippines, you are limited in taking up to P10,000.00 without prior authority from the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas. The same restriction applies for when you leave. Carrying of foreign currency in excess of US 10,000.00 or its equivalent in other currencies must be declared.

Did you know? PHP Currency Facts

- In 2009, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) announced that it has launched a massive redesign for current banknotes and coins to further enhance security features and improve durability
- In the 1950s, the exchange rate was 2 pesos against the US dollar. The fluctuating free rate was abolished in 1965 and several devaluations followed.
- A 10% service charge is automatically added to the bill at some restaurants, but leaving a little extra tip is always appreciated (perhaps P40 to P50 per person if service is not included).
