Philippine Republic, the first generation...

I recently got a good sized lot of these to fill the holes in my US struck set. I got every date and denomination of the circulation coins from 1958-1966 except the 1958 50 centavos (still looking for that one) and the 1964 5 centavos. The ones pictured, except the centavo, I believe were struck in London while US stopped production of foreign coins to concentrate their resources on the changover to clad coinage. Between 1964 and 1966 the only foreign coins produced by the US mints (SF) were the 1966 coins for Panama, and those were mainly on the same planchets as the US coins (the 1 Balboa proof is somewhat the exception).




There were two varieties of 1966 25 centavos produced. The second one only has some slight differences, mainly it's better defined.



The 1966 5 centavo also looks to have been slightly altered, but didn't get a new number in the Krause. If anyone knows if there were 1966 5 centavos (or 1964) that were struck with the original design, please let me know.

You've got some beauties there. I have a few US territory Philippine coins and several republic coins. I love that 64 50c, though!
