Value of 1906 Philippine Islands Five Hundred Silver Pesos Certificate

Value of 1906 Philippine Islands Five Hundred Silver Pesos Certificate

Country: The Philippines

Series Year: 1906

Type: Silver Certificate

Denomination: Five Hundred Silver Pesos

Governor General: James F. Smith

Treasurer: Frank A. Branagan

Quantity Printed: 6,000

Comments: Five hundred pesos was the equivalent of $250. One can only imagine how far $250 went in 1906. There was definitely no incentive to save one of these. Their purchasing power was significant. They are extremely rare today.

Signature Combination Variety2

Governor General: W. Cameron Forbes

Treasurer: J. L. Barrett

Quantity Printed: 6,000

Comments: Only 6,000 of these were printed. We couldn’t find a picture of one. We can tell you that the serial number should be between A6001 and A12000.

Signature Combination Variety3

Governor General: Francis Burton Harrison

Treasurer: A. P. Fitzsimmons

Quantity Printed: 10,000

Comments: The numbering convention continues with this signature combination. A printing of 10,000 sounds down right common compared to the other notes from this series. However, 10,000 doesn’t save room for many survivors either.
