The image of the late former President Cory Aquino joins her husband on the new 500 peso bill.  This is a part of redesigning all Philippine bank notes as per the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas.  Security has also been upgraded to prevent fraud.  All 6 denominations - P20, P50, P100, P200, P500 and P1000 were given facelifts.  Take a peek and tell me what you think.
