Philippines releases 100-piso note with altered color

The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP: the Central Bank of the Philippines) had announced last year that the 100-piso note would get a slightly different color because too many people confused it with the 1,000-piso note. Well, on 1 February 2016 the new radically different banknote has been issued to the public. Below the old 100-piso note, the new 100-piso note and for the sake of comparison the 1,000-piso note. 

The BSP: "Compared with the current color of the 100-Piso banknote in circulation, the new 100-Piso banknote will have stronger mauve or violet color on the obverse and reverse sides. All the other features of the said banknote will remain the same."
