Cashaysayan: A History of Philippine Money
Some people say that “money talks.” We agree! Our coins and bills tell us a lot about what is special about our country and people. In this book we give you the bottom line on how money was invented, how it came to our shores, how it’s made, and why it looks the way it does. Hang on, as we SHOW YOU THE MONEY–and get to know who and what’s in your wallet.

“This book reminds us that our economy has a story. That money is not just currency, it carries with it meaning, identity, and our shared experience.” – Xiao Chua, public historian
