The Silver Philippines 50 Centavos is the feature piece of this exciting World War II coin and stamp collection. The silver coin has a diameter of 27mm and was minted in both Manila and Denver. The 10-gram coin is composed of .750 silver. The obverse was designed by Melecio Figueroa and features a young Filipina in a flowing dress standing while striking an anvil with a hammer and holding an olive branch in her hand. The Mayon volcano is in the background. The denomination Fifty Centavos and the word Filipinas encircle the girl. The reverse design features an eagle perched atop a shield with a banner displaying the words Commonwealth of the Philippines. The words, United States of America, and the year of issue surround the eagle. The silver coin shares space with a 1945, 3 cent Iwo Jima stamp and a 1971, 6 cent Douglas MacArthur stamp. The genuine coin and mint United States Postage Stamps are housed in a protective gold book-style portfolio. A Certificate of Authenticity is included.
