The Philippine peso sign (₱) is the currency sign used for the Philippine peso, the official currency of the Philippines. The symbol resembles a Latin letter P with a double stroke.

This symbol for the peso is unique to the Philippines;[1] the peso sign used throughout Hispanic Latin America is "$". It was introduced under the United States colonial administration in the 20th century in order to distinguish the Philippine peso (from $ originally to ₱) in various documents versus the United States dollar which was also denoted as $.[2] The first report distinguishing Philippine pesos from US dollars using the peso (₱) sign is found here:[3]


The peso is usually denoted by the symbol "₱". This symbol was added to the Unicode standard in version 3.2 and is assigned U+20B1 (). The symbol can be accessed through some word processors by typing in "20b1" and then pressing the Alt and X buttons simultaneously, or by pressing and holding "alt", then pressing "8369" on the keypad.[4] Other ways of writing the Philippine Peso sign are "PHP", "PhP", "P", or "P" (strike-through or double-strike-through uppercase P), which is still the most common method, although font support for the Unicode Peso sign has been around for some time.[5]
