Based on verification by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP), the 1000-Piso banknote with the alleged misspelled middle name of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte featured in a story in a website is not legal tender.

The serial number shown in the said banknote does not match any of the ones issued by the BSP for the 1000-Piso Enhanced New Generation Currency banknote.

The BSP will continue to work with its stakeholders including the media in
disseminating the correct information on the Philippine currency and in protecting the integrity of banknotes and coins.
