Designed by Filipino sculptor Melencio Figueroa, the series has started to gain momentum and long deserved recognition as evidenced by climbing prices (which are mostly still bargains considering their scarcity) in recent years. Beautiful, and still very affordable (at least for the moment) considering their scarcity, these coins tell the story of America’s brief colonial empire at the start of the 20th century. The series contains examples of coins struck at the only U.S. mint ever authorized outside of the U.S. mainland – the Manila Mint. In addition, these coins are distinguished as being America’s only bi-lingual coinage, having the smallest U.S. denomination ever produced, and the first (if not only) series to feature a sitting U.S. President. The complete Phillippines set is as AMERICAN as much as it is Philippine and is an integral part of U.S. numismatics.

Notes: The complete variety set requires the varieties documented by Lyman L. Allen in his book U.S./Philippine Coins. This set has bonuses. Please see the Set Composition for a listing.
