Brushing up on history, these 1 Peso Philippine coins from 1907 and 1908 were in circulation during the American occupation of the Philippines, in the so-called era of the Insular Government. A governor general appointed by the US President was the overseer of this territorial form of government.
Thus, the front side of the coin bears an American emblem:
|Rare Philippine 1 Peso coin circa 1907|
|Rare Philippine 1 Peso coin circa 1908|

Now these coins are in my safe-keeping. These 1 Peso Philippine coins from 1907 and 1908, may be of value today, but for me they are priceless.
