  1. Hi I’m just wondering where one would usually get these commemorative coins and bank notes? The overprints I have are exclusively from circulation. The one new P1 Rizal I have is also from change but someone did give me a People Power commemorative coin and it was in a paper card making me believe that they do sell them… perhaps as face value. Hope you can answer my question… Thanks. 😀

    • Hi,

      Yes, it true, you can get these from circulation.However, commemorative are limited, most are being kept even before it reach wider circulation. You might want to check online seller(or coin shop in malls), mostly are in crisp condition, for much higher price of course. If you around manila, atm/bank could be a good source. BSP is always the best source, plus you could get it in face value.
