THE Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) announced that it will be coming out with P10 commemorative coins featuring the celebrated Filipino hero, General Juan Luna.

This, according to the BSP, is part of activities that would commemorate the 150th birth anniversary of General Luna.

It was learned that one side of the coin will have the face or portrait  of Luna, who bravely led Filipino troops during the Philippine-American War.

The other side of the coin, on the other hand, will feature Luna while riding  a horse and the words, ‘dangal,’ ‘tapang’ and  ‘dignidad’, which are the best known traits of Luna.

It will be recalled that in 2015, the public was reminded of Luna’s heroism when his life was portrayed in the movie ‘Hene-ral Luna’ which made it big in the box office.
