US Dollar - Philippine Peso Exchange Rate (1960s-2010) by Christine Pearl Maestrado

In November 1960, the decontrol program enlarged the amount of transactions valued at the free market rate to 50 percent of all foreign exchange receipts with the exchange rate at the free market reduced to P3.00 to $1.00.

On November 8, 1965, the decontrol program was completed and the peso was devalued to P3.90 to a dollar.

On February 21, 1970, the Philippines adopted the floating rate system with the first interbank guiding rate subsequently determined at P5.6282 to US$1.00 on February 24, 1970.

The peso's exchange rate experienced two hefty depreciations in 1983: from P10.083 per US$.00 in May to P11.0015 per US$1.00 in June (9.1 percent) and from P11.002 per US$1.00 in September to P14.002 per US$1.00 in October (27.3 percent).

After June 1984, when the peso depreciated by 28.6 percent from P14.002 to P18.002, the peso thereafter settled at P19.97 at the end of 1984 and appreciated by 7 percent to P18.4 in January 1985."

Sometime in 1990’s, the rate for $1.00 is P24.268.

For the past ten years, the rate for $1.00 is:

2000 = P 44.14

2001 = P51.002

2002 = P51.5762

2005= P55.0984

2010 = P43.679

    USD Dollar Drops 50% In Value Overnight?

    Hey there

    I don’t know you have heard this yet…

    But the USD Dollar is on the verge of collapse.

    In fact since 1973 it’s been on a downward trend…


    USD national debt is at an all time high and now financial experts are saying that China is starting to sell their debt holdings to the secondary market.

    This means it won’t be too long until the USD crumbles in value!

    I don’t want to be the bringer of bad news, but this is seriously not good for the US since we already have domestic problems of our own, such as immigration and unemployment.

    Our economy can not withstand another hit.

    This time the USD might actually collapse.
