Fake Money

10 peso coin, Philippine MoneyJust few days had passed, it was reported in the local television show that a vendor in the cemetery has been a victim of a 1000 Peso bill of faked money. And now, Filipinos have to watch out of the 5 peso and 10 peso coins because they have been faked also. The nega part of using technology, you know.


How to determine the faked ones?

Ang pekeng P10 ay mas magaspang kaysa sa orihinal. Lumalampas din ang mga linya o gitling sa gilid nito. Wala sa sentro at hindi gaanong detalyado ang imprenta ng mukha at buhok nina Apolinario Mabini at Andres Bonifacio at mas makapal ang mga letra ng mga ito kaysa sa orihinal.

Pwede ring malaman kung peke ang isang barya o tunay sa pamamagitan ng magnet test. Kapag dumikit sa magnet, siguradong peke raw ito.

"Ang original 10-peso coins ay gawa sa copper nickel. Ang peke gawa lang sa steel kaya dumidikit sa magnet," ani Maja Gratia Malic ng Bangko Sentral.
Pero tanging P10 barya lang ang pwedeng gamitan ng magnet test dahil pawang magnetic ang lahat ng P0.10, P1 at P5 na barya.


Malalaman naman kung peke ang limang pisong barya kung mas dilaw at makinang ang kulay nito. Magaspang ito, mas manipis at mas maliit sa orihinal. Hindi rin nakasentro ang "scallop" design nito sa gilid.


The above information on how to detect a faked 5 peso and 10 peso coins were taken from ABS-CBN Interactive.
