Money Museum of the Central Bank of the Philippines


Recommended Posts

How appropriate then that our tour guides from the Department of Tourism brought us to the Money Museum of the Central Bank of the Philippines. The museum, now called the Mueso ng Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, is a numismatist's haven.


With the second batch of winners of the Department of Tourism's "The Philippines: Explore. Experience. Return." (PEER) program, I dared venture into the museum and discovered the colorful world of money, inside the nation's central money authority.

The Money Museum was established in 1974 and showcases the Central Bank's collection of currencies, among other things. It also traces the history of the currency, from the lowly cowry shells to what we now know was our Philippine coins.
