MANILA – The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas said it deployed to the financial system on Tuesday bank notes that bear the signature of President Rodrigo Duterte.

Five million bills per 20, 50, 100, 500 and 1,000-peso denomination and two million 200-peso bills were sent to BSP regional offices across the country, Deputy Governor Diwa Guinigundo.

“In the subsequent days, until the New Year, we will continue to not only produce but to ship them to the different branches of the BSP,” he said.

Guinigundo said the design and security features of the bills were unchanged.
