The peso (Filipino: piso;
sign: ₱; code: PHP) is
the currency of the
Philippines. It is
subdivided into 100
centavos (Filipino:
sentimo, Visayan:
sentabo).[1] Before
1967 as a former colony
of the United States,
the language used on
the banknotes and
coins was in English, and
so the word "peso" was
used. Since the adaption
of Filipino language for
banknotes and coins,
the Filipino term "piso" is
now used on Philippine
money.
The peso is usually
denoted by the symbol
"₱". Other ways of
writing the Philippine
peso sign are "PHP",
"PhP", "Php", or just "P".
The "₱" symbol was
added to the Unicode
standard in version 3.2
and is assigned U+20B1
(₱). The symbol can be
accessed through some
word processors by
typing in "20b1" and
then pressing the Alt
and X buttons
simultaneously.[2] Font
support for the Unicode
Peso sign has been
around for some time
as the peso is also the
currency used by Mexico
and other former
colonies of Spain in Latin
America, which still use
the currency.[3]
The Philippine coins and
banknotes are minted
and printed at the
Security Plant Complex
of the Bangko Sentral
ng Pilipinas
(Central Bank of the
Philippines) in Quezon
City
