Espesyal at bagong Piso, tadaaa!

Sa lahat ng perang Pinoy, ang PISONG BARYA daw ang PINAKAGAMIT ng marami... mayaman o mahirap kaya raw dito nilagay ang imahe ng PAMBANSANG BAYANING si JOSE RIZAL.


Di tulad noon na naka-side view sya, ngayon ay buong mukha nya na ang nakalagay.


At sa likod naman, ang bagong logo ng Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas.


Gawa sa nickel plated steel ang bagong piso kaya di na daw madali gayahin o tunawin.


10 milyong piraso nito ang nailabas na mula Dec 19, 2011, Lunes.
