Philippine numismatic writing, from the scholarly efforts of a past generation to the more recent, more commercially oriented catalogues and guidebooks, has consisted largely of specialized works and sectoral lists. Most of the work has been done by what might be called inspired amateurs, persons whose main professions or occupations were something else but who devoted a part of their time to their avocation of numismatics. This book is no exception. In some older writings, we find hints at a history of Philippine coinage, but nothing that really developed into a comprehensive survey. This little book therefore fills the long felt need for a competent overview of coinage in the Philippines, researched both in its numismatic and historical aspects. Dr. Legarda screens out the more specialized concerns of numismatists and numismatic dealers while retaining the core of interest which would attract the public at large.
