BSP Belies Reports of P1,000 Bill w/ Misspelled President Duterte’s Middle Name
The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) belied the reports showing a P1,000 with the misspelled middle name of President Duterte.
On Wednesday (September 30, 2020), BSP released an official statement regarding the banknote with an alleged misspelled middle of President Rodrigo Duterte, which is now circulating on social media.
The agency said that the report regarding the banknote has been featured in a story on a website. The report showed that the bill contains a misspelled President’s middle name “Boa” instead of “Roa”.
The department verified that the P1,000 bill is not legal tender and does not match the serial numbers in any of 1000- Piso Enhanced New Generation Currency banknote. The image used on Wikipedia page has been also updated.
“The serial number shown in the said banknote does not match any of the ones issued by the BSP for the 1000-Piso Enhanced New Generation Currency banknote,” BSP wrote on the statement.
The New Generation Currency banknotes have been officially released in July 2020 and currently circulating in the country.
