200 peso note[edit]

What evidence is there to suggest that the 200 peso note is only rarely used? Anecdotally, I find it at least as common as the 500 peso note, though less common than the 100 and 1000 peso notes. 49.145.141.125 (talk) 10:32, 16 August 2017 (UTC)

Anecdotally, I find the p200 note much less common than the p500 note; I might see half a dozen p200 notes in a year. I spend most of my time on either VBoracay or Romblon islands, however, where relative number in circulation might differ from Manila or other locations.

Anecdotally, I can also state that I rarely see the 200-peso note. —seav (talk) 13:39, 18 August 2017 (UTC)

Name change/major overhaul[edit]

ISO 4217 Amendment Number 164 was published in September.[1] One of the chances was, with immediate effect, the changing of the name of the currency to the Philippine piso.

I am inclined to go ahead and move the article. There will be a number of related articles that will also need moved, and some (but not necessarily all) mentions of peso will need changed. I'd like some more-expert eyes to do a lot of that, because of issues with historical usage of the term. —C.Fred (talk) 02:23, 13 October 2017 (UTC)

As far as I'm concerned, the move is way too hasty. For one, the law hasn't changed: the BSP's charter still says that the national currency is the peso, and there has been no legal change to the name of the currency. I would only support a move if and when Congress passes legislation dictating that the national currency is the piso, not the peso, and not because the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas decided to change the currency reference in ISO 4217.
The peso/piso debate has been brewing on and off here on Wikipedia for the last few years, and there hasn't been a local consensus on whether or not the article should be moved. Last time I checked, consensus among Filipino Wikipedians was firmly in favor of keeping "peso", since that's the name of the currency in English (as opposed to Filipino), and all English references to the currency, including the literature of the BSP, refer to the currency as such. This should've gone through RM first, if you asked me, and so in the interest of making sure that Filipinos know what's being talked about, I'm moving the article back to its original name. --Sky Harbor (talk) 04:47, 4 November 2017 (UTC)
