About

The Philippine Peso (PHP) is the official currency of the Philippines. The Spanish first brought coins to the country during the 16th century, replacing a system based on bartering. The currency has been through many changes over the years, but the creation of the Central Bank of the Philippines in 1949 led to a formal currency being created.

† Date available will be displayed on receipt for international transfers over $15.  Service and funds availability depends on certain factors including the Service selected, the selection of delayed delivery options, special terms applicable to each Service, amount sent, destination country, currency availability, regulatory issues, consumer protection issues, identification requirements, delivery restrictions, agent location hours, and differences in time zones (collectively, “Restrictions”).
