United States Philippines Coins Are Hot Baby

Discussion in 'US Coins Forum' started by The Abomidable panda, Sep 22, 2021.

  1. The Philippine Islands became a United States territory after the Spanish American war.

    USPI coins are on fire lately prices have been quadrupling in the last year or two.

    The pesos in particular have been jumping in price.

    The United States pesos from 1903-1912 is a challenging set to complete in high grades.

    Do you own any pesos in your collection? I have them all except the 1906s. I am also missing the 1905 and 1906 proofs.

    The photo below isn’t mine but in case you aren’t familiar with the series, see the coins below!

    I was working on a Philippines set a few years ago. I have most if not all of the centavos, five centavos, ten centavos and twenty centavos. Some but fewer of the 50 centavos and only one or two pesos. I don't have photos of most but I have these two. 1907 s philippines 1 peso.jpg 1908 s philippines 1 peso1.jpg

    I love Fil-American coinage. I like the earlier "eagle on shield" design more than the later one from the Commonwealth era.

    At the moment, I own a Mint State 50-centavos piece in my personal collection, and two circulated pesos in my sell-swap-giveaway inventory.

    Not a terribly expensive piece. $80-ish, as I recall. Already slabbed. It is softly struck in places but that is compensated for by the luster.

    I’d love a proof peso, but they don’t come cheap.
