Owner Comments:

800 Silver, 20.0 grams. Mintage 10,000 (The actual number of existing coins is far less as many of these coins were crated and thrown into Manila Bay, near Corregidor, in 1942 to avoid seizure by the invading forces of Japan.) Combined Population 98/138.

In 1936 the Manila Mint produced a set of three coins to commemorate the founding of the Commonwealth Of The Philippines on Novenber 15, 1935. The obverse design of the Roosevelt - Quezon Peso features portraits of the first Philippine President Manual L. Quezon and U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt. This was the second appearance of a living U.S. President on a coin issued by the United States. The reverse design depicts the official seal of "The Commomwealth of the Philippines".

This PCGS MS-64 specimen is a beautiful lusterous, untoned, fully struck example of the Roosevelt-Quezon Commerative Peso.
