ThIs banknote commemorates the centennial celebration of De La Salle University (1911-2011), one of the oldest university in the Philippines. It was a year long celebration which was formally culminated on June 2012.

DLSU went to Its final stages of coordination with the BSP, earlier in April 2012. The whole process took two years to complete. This December 7th, it was released for public circulation yet marked as year 2011.

The DLSU overprint was supposedly to have two kinds of logo. The initial logo bears an “official DLSU” logo placed over a smaller the “De La Salle Brothers’ ” logo and because of printing difficulties, we ended up with the logo we see today.

According to BSP’s policy, institutional overprints are not allowed on the New Generation Currency (NGC) banknotes. Hence, most overprint releases since Dec 2010 are printed on the New Design Series (NDS).

Last year BSP hosted foundations of leading educational institutions in the country. UST, UP and Ateneo, each had their own commemorative overprint from BSP.
