‘Mukhang galing gyera’: Netizens excited to get P10 Heneral Luna coins
Filipinos are rarely this excited when it comes to new coins and bills released by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP), but their latest announcement made waves all over social media.
On Friday, Nov. 24, the central bank unveiled commemorative P10 coins to honor the 150th birth anniversary of General Antonio Luna, whose life has been heralded for his bravery and uncanny wit during the Philippine-American War.
Netizens were quick to praise the limited edition coins, recalling their fond memories of the hero as captured in the 2015 historical movie by Jerrold Tarrog.
“Our hero sure looked fresh from a fistfight,” one Facebook user said.
Others wanted to get their hands on the new coins as quickly as possible and turn it into a collector’s item of sorts.
