The people of the Philippines know very well the story of the People Power Revolution or EDSA revolution. The movement that ended the dictatorship of the former Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos in 1986. To commemorate this event, the Banko Sentral ng Pilipinas minted a one of a kind coin in 1988. Its a large, rather thick, coin made of pure nickel. I'm a proud owner of this coin. This was given to me back in college. Back then it was a beautiful coin, someone played around with it and dropped the thing. It has a rather ugly dent on its edge, but the coin remains uncirculated and its one of the coins i have that i am sure is UNC grade.

REPUBLIKA NG PILIPINAS
This coin commemorates the courage of the Filipino People who fought against tyranny and injustice. When liberty is threatened, the people are always ready to fight and defend that freedom. This revolution is one of a kind in that it was a non violent revolt against the Marcos regime.
