The Central Bank of the Philippines released the new generation Philippine PESO notes and it was featured first on TV last Dec 15, 2010. The new Philippine PESO notes used the same color from its previous design but added some of the famous landmarks and animals that can be found in the Philippines at its back side. They added also a lot of expensive security features so criminals can't copy and/or it will cost too much for them to make a single copy of each peso note.
