Topic: Silver Philippine Peso coin sets
Message: Posted by: griz326 (Apr 24, 2020 03:31PM)
I like working with silver Philippine peso coins. We minted them from 1903-06 (38mm diameter) and 1907-12 (35mm diameter). The earlier coins have a higher silver content and are difficult to find. The 07-12 coins are about the size of a 75-cent piece :) Is there a reason no one creates gaffes for these coins?

At 35mm diameter I've been unable to find an exact size match, but there are quite a few international coins within a millimeter in size. I've also been looking for commemorative coins and tokens, but write-ups rarely give the diameter.

I'm on a quest!

I think Todd Lassen may have made up a custom gaff or two with these.

I am not sure about silver, but the regular peso that have a brass color have shells, Rannie Raymundo used yo use them and maybe he could help you, he is a memer here.
I brought from Manila many pesos and asked Tango to make me shells they were very nice
