Today, I Luckily got a 200 Peso bill with the UST’s unending grace logo. Pretty good collectors item.
It was around January this year when the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) or Central Bank of the Philippines issued the limited commemorative 200-peso note as well as gold and silver medals to celebrate the University of Santo Tomas 400th year anniversary. The central bank issued 10 million legal tender notes and 400 commemorative medals with no monetary value. The central bank also sold 400 numismatic items consisting of an uncut sheet of two 200-peso commemorative notes.
The University of Santo Tomas was established by Miguel de Benavides, who was the third archbishop of Manila.
