Cincuenta Pesos

I keep forgetting to 'claim' from Darling Sister the newly issued notes from Bangko Sentral. They are being issued to the public on a staggered basis and as scheduled, Php50 came out in January.

Finally, she went to our house and I was able to sweetly extract from her two crisp cincuenta pesos bills.

Here it is:

The back showcases Taal Volcano, the smallest volcano in the world, sitting at the heart of Taal Lake. The Giant Trevally (locally called Maliputo), known to thrive in the fresh waters of Taal Lake is also featured.

Note that even in the Php50 bill, the scientific name of the fish is still wrongly written as it is not in  binomial nomenclature format.

May I just mention that like Manuel Quezon in vente pesos, Pres. Sergio Osmeña looked so different in the new money. If not for the hairline, I could almost see Andres Bonifacio instead.

Agree or disagree?
