by Gaby B. Keith / PIO

Mayor Mauricio Domogan signed the resolution approved by the city council urging all malls, shopping complexes, retail stores and/or their outlets and other similar establishments to politely encourage their customers and patrons to use coins and/or exchange coins at their place of business for an improved and efficient coin recollection system.

Resolution 325, s. 2017, introduced by Councilor Leandro Yangot, Jr., cites a study conducted by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas revealing that an artificial shortage and ineffective circulation of coins in the country exists but declaring that there is no actual shortage of coins.

As of Dec. 31, 2016, the BSP reported there are 26.53 billion pieces of coins valued at P29.63 billion in circulation.

The resolution states that the BSP has identified reasons and causes of the perceived shortage of coins or keeping coins idle either by using these as washers, throwing away at natural pools; or hoarding inside bank vaults, piggy banks and drawers.

It added that to help promote the regular use of coins, the BSP has examined retailers and business associations that has the towering demand for coins particularly the lower-denominated ones, as major stakeholders in assuring that the public fully realize the importance of coins and inculcate the habit of regularly in paying and disbursing and giving exact change.

The resolution was based on the report and recommendation of the city council’s committee on market, trade, commerce, and agriculture.
