Ang Bagong Lipunan Series (1973-1993)

The Ang Bagong Lipunan (ABL) series was issued by the Central Bank of the Philippines in line with Presidential Decree No. 168 dated April 2, 1973. The Ang Bagong Lipunan (literally means New Society) legend overprinted on the banknotes was meant to symbolize then President Marcosí New Society which marked the era of reforms on social, economic and political structure of the government. This legend was the main difference in the design between ABL and Pilipino series. The lowest denomination in the ABL series was 2-piso and the highest was 100-piso. The 2-piso denomination carried the design elements of the 1-piso Pilipino series. The ABL banknote series was considered demonetized after February 2, 1996.
