San_Miguel98 Posted October 2, 2005 Report Share Posted October 2, 2005 I found a 2000 Peso Banknote on sale for a killer price and I couldn't pass it up. The notes are huge, (8.5 x 5.2 inches), and were issued to mark the Philippine Centennial of independence from Spain (1898-1998). The reverse is great, as it depicts a re-enactment of Gen. Aguinaldo's famous flag waving 100 years prior, but the one thing I hate about this note is the front. The front image shows the swearing in of then-president Joseph Estrada. Clearly, it has nothing to do with the centennial celebration and strikes me as overboard egotistical vanity. Oh well. I don't suppose he was impeached for being an all-around great guy. original event: re-enacted back: egotistical non-commemorative related front: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
