Cory on the Philippine 500-Peso Bill

By 3:25 PM ,

The Philippine 500-Peso bill started circulating last August 1987. Its yellow hue is associated with the 1986 EDSA People Power Revolution with Ninoy Aquino, former President Cory Aquino's husband. Now, the Central Bank is planning a 'new generation' look for the said bill and the proposal to add the portrait of former President Cory Aquino beside her husband is being considered.

One of Cory's siblings was quoted saying that they appreciate such nice thoughts but they think the former President never imagined herself being in any Philippine peso bill.

A spokesman for President Gloria Arroyo said any proposal to declare the late president a national hero like her husband will be studied.
