Five- And Ten-Centavo Coins Are Legal Tender In The Philippines

08.24.2000

The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) has received reports that some establishments have not been accepting the Five (5)- and Ten (10)-centavo coins issued by the BSP as payment for purchases, or have been short-changing customers owing to a purported lack of said coins to complete the exact change.  We wish to inform the public that these coins remain legal tender in the Philippines.   We enjoin consumers to be vigilant and to report any such incidents to the investigation staff, Cash Department, BSP, located at room 301, Multi-story bldg., or call telephone numbers 523-9806 or 524-7011 to 53, local 2388, for assistance.
