On Bonifacio day, 30th of November 2011, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Officers Club and the BSP Employees Association will lay down a 70 km 25-centavo coins line; in front of the Manila Grandstand in Manila’s Rizal Park as Philippine will try to break the Guinness World Record on the longest line of coins now held by the United States.

The present world record holder is USA who laid the longest line of coins of 64.8 kilometers. The project seeks to break this record by reaching at least 70 kilometers or even up to 100 kilometers using 25 centavo coins to be carefully laid over at least 6,000 square meters of space fronting the Manila Grandstand. At least 1,200 Kabayanihan volunteers will take turns in shifts to lay the coins one after another starting at 2 p.m. on Nov. 30 to 8 a.m., Dec. 1.

The project aims to unify Filipinos through the “bayanihan” concept and to unleash the power of small change by enlisting and involving as many Filipinos as possible to do small acts of heroism in the collection and donation of barya as their contribution to nation building. It also aims to address the country’s acute shortage of public classroom using the small coins collected and donated for the world record-breaking attempt.
