Demonetization Process of Old Bank Notes from the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas

Manila, November 16, 2015---The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) has issued the final date of demonetizing old bank notes up until December 31, 2015 and in 2016 may only be exchanged in banks or at the BSP. They have already started demonetizing old bank notes series earlier this year, which means that old banknotes can still be used to pay for goods and services up until the said deadline. After which, the old bank notes will be rendered useless and will be stripped from the current values from the Philippine banks and establishments including malls, shops and markets.
