Philippines 10, 20, and 40 Centimos  1864 to 1868
Philippines 10, 20, and 40 Centimos 1864 to 1868

Spain was influential in the Philippines from the time of Ferdinand Magellan (1521) to the Spanish-American War (1896). A portrait of Queen Isabella II shows on the 10, 20 and 40 centimos coinage from 1864 to 1868. Similar portraits and inscriptions appear on the 50 centimos pieces of the era, as well as the peso denominations. This page applies only to 10, 20, and 40 centimos.

The inscription on the reverse, e.g., '20 Cs DE Po' means '20 centimos of a peso' or '20 one-hundredths of a peso.' These old coins are interesting pieces of history, but they are difficult to find with little wear and good eye appeal. Coins dated 1868 are much more common than other dates, because millions were minted during the years 1886 to 1898 with that date.

The listings below show approximate catalog values for coins dated 1868. If you have a specimen with an earlier date, 1865 to 1867, multiply these values by five. If your coin is dated 1864, multiply by 10.

10 CENTIMOS dated 1868:
worn: $8 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $15
well preserved: $70
fully uncirculated: $220

20 CENTIMOS dated 1868:
worn: $6 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $10
well preserved: $40
fully uncirculated: $160

40 CENTIMOS dated 1868:
worn: $10 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $25
well preserved: $75
fully uncirculated: $280
40 centimos dated 1866 and 1867 are very rare, cataloging for $600 in average circulated condition

You must apply the corrections shown on our Important Terminology page to convert these catalog values to actual buy and sell values.
