It's not a trick coin, I have a reg phillipines 1 piso coin and its just set up like that. The front 1995, and the back 1993. I think the 1993 refers to the start of the bank of phillipines or something regarding a date besides when it was minted.

This coin is an official circulated coin of the Philippines. The date on the obverse is the mint mark. The date on the reverse signifies the year of the establishment of the Philippine Central Bank. It is not a magic coin.

Bank seal within circle and gear design - the 1993 date was the date the Central Bank was established, not the mintage year.



Reverse - Head of Jose Rizal, mintage date 1995 - 2003
