Below is an excerpt from a Philippine newspaper article describing a "first" in banknote history. I'm not sure I believe it. Can an E-Sylum reader identify any other examples of a banknote featuring a person's signature together with images of both of their parents? Below is an image of the new note from another web site.
Delighted with the new P500 bill that bears the images of his late parents alongside his signature, President Benigno Aquino III could only marvel at how “unprecedented” it all was.
“The last time I checked no other banknote in the world had both parents and child on the same bill,” Mr. Aquino said Thursday at the launch of the new generation of Philippine bank notes at Malacañang.
The new P500 bill had the smiling faces of his mother, President Corazon C. Aquino, and father, the martyred Sen. Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr. to the left of his signature as President.
Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) Governor Amando Tetangco said the new P500 bill “makes history for having on the same banknote both parents with their son’s signature.”
