Salapi: The Numismatic Heritage of the Philippines traces the development of money in the Philippines, from the pre-colonial period to the present. The book is part of the continuing celebration of the country's tangible heritage that has become a tradition in the Bank of the Philippine Islands. The bank, after all, is not just a passive witness to the evolution of money in the country but was an active participant and in fact a pioneer in the introduction of paper money in the Philippines.

Spread in 308 pages, this full-color volume ambitiously combines the history of coinage and that of paper money in one single book, a feat that has never been attempted before. Fully referenced, the book's seven chapters are interspersed with interesting bits of. information in sidebar articles that tackle facets of specific coins or paper money. The book is designed not just for collectors but the general public and the curious.
