PHP

ISO 4217 code for the Philippine peso. While its origins date to 1852, the modern peso came into being following the independence of the Philippines in the 1940s. It was originally pegged to silver and gold, but overprinting and hoarding of currency caused it to become a floating currency in 1964. Since independence, the Philippines government has consistently devalued the peso in order to reduce the nation's debt in domestic terms. This has made it a weak currency.
