The 5-piso note was issued by the Central Bank on June 12, 1985. The front side of the 5-
piso banknote features the portrait of Emilio Aguinaldo. The back of the banknote features the Philippine declaration of independence by Emilio Aguinaldo on June 12, 1898.  This was previously featured on the reverse of the Ang Bagong Lipunan series two piso banknote.   In 1996,  the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas has stopped printing this banknote  and released the new 5 coin denomination that coincided the launching of the Improved Flora and Fauna series coins.
