Comments

1897 Alfonso XIII is the FIRST and LAST One peso silver coin of the Philippines bearing the name Islas Filipinas. One year after its 1897 mintage, Spanish rule in the Philippine Islands officially ended with the 1898 Treaty of Paris, wherein Spain ceded the Philippines and other territories to the United States. Thus making this Un Peso circulation shortlived with full historic background.
