Philippine error coins

In the Philippines, there are two misspelled coins in particular which were considered to be error coins, these are the 10 sentimos where “PANDAKA PYGMEA” stands instead of “PYGMAEA” and the 50 sentimos with “PITHECOBHAGA JEFFERYI” instead of “PITHECHOPHAGA JEFFERYI”, both under the “Flora & Fauna” coin series. These two were a 1983 release and an instant collectible for most numismatist, since Banko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) had placed it into circulation back then.

  5. I have a 1944 silver 50 centavos coin where the center of the shield on the reverse is missing. Can anyone help me to distinguish it.
