Holiday this Wednesday (April 9) and the New 10 Pesos Coin

A few updates

Day of Valor on April 9, 2014

This Wednesday, April 9 is a national holiday in the Philippines in celebration of the Day of Valor. This is in commemoration of the fall of the military base in Corregidor Island, Bataan in April 9, 1942 (World War 2).

New 10-Peso Coin Finally Reached Me

The new 10 Peso coin that was released by Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) finally reached my coin purse. I'm not sure how it got there but I think it was cool. As previously reported as early as December last year, this new coin was minted in celebration of Andres Bonifacio's 150th birth anniversary last November 30, 2013. 

The coin features the same 26.5 mm diameter bimetallic style like the common one. The face of Andres Bonifacio was also engraved on one side while his signature and the logo of the central bank  was on the other side.
