CORAZON AQUINO in Future P500 Bill & Sainthood - Video aired Aug. 6, 2009

The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP), the Philippine central bank, is backing the proposal to have the P500 bill also bear a portrait of the late Corazon “Cory” Aquino.

The current P500 bill carries the portrait of the late Sen. Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr., the husband of the former President, whose passing on Aug. 1 continues to be mourned nationwide.

The suggestion to include Cory Aquino’s portrait on the P500 bill was made to BSP Governor Amando Tetangco Jr. by former Energy Secretary Vince Perez, according to an earlier report.

On Thursday, Tetangco told reporters that he had “asked the numismatic committee to consider the proposal to put up the portrait of former President Aquino on the P500 bill in designing our new-generation currency notes.”

Here's a video from 24 Oras which aired Aug. 6, 2009
