20sThe New Generation Banknote Series was supposed to replace the BSP Series last 2010.  It did, but only for a month or two.  By 2011, the NGB series was gone and the BSP Series was back.  I haven’t seen any NGB bills dated 2011, only BSP bills.  For 2012, it seemed that the BSP Series would continue, but I just discovered a 2012 NGB bill.

If you know the story behind these changes, please leave a comment.

There have been four recent overprintings on Philippine banknotes that involve anniversaries of universities:  three on the 100-peso bill (University of the Philippines Centennial, U.P. College of Law Centennnial, and Ateneo Law School 75th anniversary) and one on the 200-peso bill (University of Santo Tomas Quadricentennial).  I do not know why De La Salle University, which celebrated its centennial last year, does not have a commemorative bill.
