Philippines 1 Peso  1947
Philippines 1 Peso 1947

What a great coin! The S mint mark on the coin denotes the San Francisco mint. Even though the Philippines gained independence from the US in 1946, the San Fran. mint kept striking coins for them for a while. This is a modern coin though, so its value is low. The thing that gives it value is its silver content.

Your 1947 Philippines peso contains 0.579 troy ounces of silver. Using a web site like, we find the current price of silver is $18.5 US dollars per ounce. The base value of your coin is then 0.579 x 20 = $10.71. But tomorrow the value of silver will be different. Look it up.

If your coin is in superb shape, like the coin in our picture, with plenty of mint luster and eye appeal, you can add a little to the value:

worn: base value (BV)
average circulated: BV
well preserved: BV + $10
fully uncirculated: $BV + $15

Coin: 3669 , Genre: Islamic Hindu Buddhist
