The peso (Filipino: piso) (sign: ₱; code: PHP) is the currency of the Philippines. It is subdivided into 100 centavos (Filipino: sentimo, Visayan: sentabo). Before 1967, the language used on the banknotes and coins was English, and so "peso" was the name used. When the language used was changed to Filipino, this changed to "piso". The peso is usually denoted by the symbol "₱". Other ways of writing the Philippine peso sign are "PHP", "PhP", "Php", and/or "P".
The coins and banknotes are made at the Security Plant Complex of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas.
