A lot of modern day Philippines silver coins are being offered for sale and I am having a hard time verifying its silver content. I got this 1975 25-peso Ang Bagong Lipunan coin and it turned out that it is only 50% silver. There are several coins still being offered around (Marcos Coins P50, P100, etc., years 1972 and above). The popular 1975 P5 coin is made of steel as it clings to the magnet. Can we find some information about these modern coins? Thanks.

Actually the 5peso marcos coin is made of nickel. The 1972 piso is made of nickel plus a little bit of copper. There is no 100 piso Marcos coin but there is 1000, 1500, 2500, and 5000 gold coin marcos heads.

The 1975 5-Peso coin is questionable, nickel is not attracted to magnets, the 1944 and 1945 Phil-Am 5-centavo coins are nickel coins and do not cling to the magnet. Anyway thank you very much for the other information re Marcos gold coins, probably it is harder to find and surely cost expensive. My friend is offering me a 1976 Marcos 25 peso coin, claiming it is silver, is this true? and in case, how much should it cost.. Thanks again for the info..
