The Philippines islands became a United States territorial possession after the Hispanic American War in 1898. The islands went thru several transitions in the political and economic sectors way further into the 1980's as part of its own adjustments to establish both cultural and identityáissues.
After suffering a Japanese invasion in WWII, the US Armed Forces regained control of the islands in 1944 and steadily moved the economy and administration of the Philippines people to a better advantage point. Supervision and issuance of currency befell over US Government authorities present in Manila.á
This silver made coin is a nice example of such activity mentioned above. Beautifully designed, the coin represents hope and progress within that specific year of 1944.á
In my own words.
