Isang Babae, May Kakaibang Nakita Sa Bente Pesos Ngunit May Nakatawag Ng Pansin Niya Sa Pera Na May Nakasulat Na ‘Alibata’ At Laking Gulat Niya Ng Malaman Ang Kahulugan Nito

During the pre-Hispanic times, the Philippines had a writing system the originated from Javanese script Old Kawi. The writing system is called Baybayin. The term Baybayin literally means spelling. If you didn’t know, most of the Baybayin characters are common syllables in our native language. Some examples are ka, ga, ta, na, da.

Words are spelled the same way they are pronounced.

Recently, a netizen in the name of Samanta Seika Vitocruz discovered Baybayin writings on the current 20 peso bill. She was so amused that she shared her discovery on social media that became viral.

In her post, she said that she was randomly looking at her bill when she noticed the letters. Out of curiosity, she researched what the letters meant and discovered that it said the word “Pilipino”. Samantha captioned her post:

“GRABI HAHAHAHA While looking at my bente….. IM SHOOKT! May mga baybayin letters akong nakita…

Sinearch ko anong meaning, And it was (pe/i) (le/i) (pe/i) (no/u) OR PILIPINO.

p.s.Hindi ko po sinulatan ang pera, at intindihin na hindi lahat ng tao alam ang tungkol dito.”

Many netizens were as shocked as she was after reading about her discovery. Here are some of their reactions:

“Wew? Meron pala. All this time!! Hahahaha.”


“Matang lawin”

Other netizens, on the other hand, were already aware of this discovery years ago when it the bill was endorsed publicly and was released. This caused negative remarks from said netizens.
