a RARE mistake ....

a 1983 Philippine 50centavo coin, with the scientific name of the endangered Philippine Eagle wrongly spelled ... it is supposed to be Pithecophaga jefferyi.

Fantastic that you have that coin and actually noticed. Happy weekend.

That is so cool! My aunt gave me a two dollar bill when I was younger (I have no idea where it is now) but this misspelling is much cooler!

Now that is a really cool item to have.

Happy Weekend!

Cool!!! So do you collect coins? I have a few that I collect as well.

I have a coing collection too! Thanks for sharing your cool one!

And how many of these did they make before figuring it out? This will be very rare and valuable if it isn't already!

leah: nope, i really don't collect coins, but i just thought i'd hang unto this one and some few old ones. :)

srp: i think it was the first batch that they made, then when they found out the mistake, they began making new ones (without the mistake, of course. lol). but we don't use this coin anymore. :)

thanks, everyone, for dropping by!

HA?!?! The government who printed the coins in the mint got the scientific name wrongly spelt?! What did the government do after that? Were the coins recalled? Made new ones?

That''s cool! Is it extra valuable now?

Wow! You're so lucky to have that coin. If I'm right the BSP governor was sacked for that mistake. Or was he? Would you mind if I posted this picture on my blog philmoney.blogspot.com
