The PHILIPPINE peso

Philippine Peso Sign
Code - PHP or php
Description - it is the currency of the Philippines wherein It is subdivided into 100 centavos (Spanish language) or sentimo (Filipino language). Before 1967, the language used on the banknotes and coins was English and so "peso" was the name used. The language was then changed to Pilipino which was the name of the Filipino language then and so the currency as written on the banknotes and coins is piso.
The peso is usually denoted by the symbol " ". This symbol was added to the Unicode standard in version 3.2 and is assigned U+20B1. Due to the lack of font support, the symbol is often substituted with a simple "P", a P with one horizontal line instead of two (available as the peseta sign, U+20A7 (P), in some fonts), as "PHP", or "PhP".
