El Banco Espanol Filipino Currency
All of these bank notes are dated for 1908, or 1 Enero 1908. These often get overlooked because they are in Spanish. In 1908 the bank just happened to still have its original Spanish name. These were still printed under the authority of The United States. The 1912 bank notes have the standard English title that we are more familiar with. Most Spanish language versions were printed in extremely low quantities in higher denominations. Any note in perfect condition is also going to be scarce. These really stand out because their designs are very different from other currency from The Philippines.
