Recently, there's this news circulating that the government of my country, the Philippines, is planning to change our 20 pesos paper bill into a coin. I'd like to believe that there are issues solved here but I can't tell what. So, I'd like to ask you guys - What are the pros and cons of changing a paper bill to a coin?
Many would argue that we have a lot of other important issues in our country that needs to be focused on instead of this silly move of changing a note into a coin. But let's just play the role of a patriotic citizen here and try to see possibilities that this simple move is actually helping (in terms of government funds, perhaps?) to enable the government do the other "important" stuffs. Like what may seem a random pawn move but is actually necessary for the future moves on the board.
