The Fifty Centavos of 1944 and 1945 continued the same obverse design used on the 1903 through 1921 Fifty Centavos. The reverse used the Commonwealth Arms design which was common to the 1936 commemoratives and all Philippine coins from 1937 through 1945. Fifty Centavos were made at the San Francisco Mint in 1944 and 1945.
The 1945 S Fifty Centavos had a mintage of 18,120,000.

This spectacular fully brilliant, untoned, SUPERB GEM is the single finest NGC certified example of the war time Fifty Centavos. Although NGC has graded two 1944-S Fifty Centavos and twenty-one 1945-S Fifty Centavos as MS67 this specimen stands alone as the only coin of its type to receive the coveted NGC STAR designation for exceptional eye appeal.
