New Philippine Banknotes

It's already past Christmas but still I haven't seen any of the new Philippine banknotes and they were scheduled to be rolled out this month. I wanna see the errors for myself on real bills. Among the errors that caused an uproar on critics are:
  • exclusion of Batanes from the Philippine map on the reverse of all denominations, mislocation of the Puerto Princesa Subterranean Underground River on the reverse of the 500-peso bill
  • mislocation Tubbataha Reef on the 1000-peso bill
  • incorrect coloring on the beak and feathers of the blue-naped parrot on the 500-peso bill
  • the scientific names of the animals featured on the reverse sides of all banknotes were incorrectly rendered because scientific names should be italicized and they are not.

I wonder when will the BSP release a new set of banknote correcting these errors. Hmmm. Gotta save some before they become collector's item.
