coins 1,2,5,10,50 notes 100,200,500,1000 ..... also centimes as part of peso 5,10,25,50

OK, here ya go - it's peso as you said or spelled in Tagalog or Philipino, piso. The peso or piso is broken down into 100 centavos. Bank notes are in denominations of 10, 20, 100, 500, 1000 and 2000 peso's. Coins come in 10 and 25 centavos (c) and 1 and 5 peso's. Pretty confusing and it gets even more confusing when your home curacy is US dollars and the exchange is 51 peso's to a dollar.

This is the latest: Notes come in denominations of: P20 P50 P100 P200 P500 P1000 The P10 note is still in use but the P10 coin is replacing it rapidly though both are currently scarce. Coins: 5 centavos 10centavos & 25 centavos P1 P5 P10 There is talk of replacing the P20 note with a P20 coin, but it hasn't happened yet. There have been many changes over the years, and the above is the current position. Oh and the P200 note is about as popular as a dog in a cattery.

they are right, they also accept U.S. Dollars some places, and Visa and such.

We use Philippine Pesos. 100 centavos = 1 peso Denominations: (coins) 5 centavos 10 centavos 25 centavos 1 peso 5 pesos 10 pesos (paper) 20 pesos 50 pesos 100 pesos 200 pesos (rare) 500 pesos 1,000 pesos Hope this helps.
