Two versions of this denomination are in circulation; the bi-metallic coin, first issued in 2000, with the dual profiles of Andrés Bonifacio and Apolinario Mabini on obverse and the 1993 logo of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas on the reverse. The current version, issued since 2018, features a portrait of Apolinario Mabini on the obverse side and the Kapa-kapa and the current logo of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas on the reverse side.
However, production of the ten peso note became obsolete when the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) stopped printing the banknotes in 2002 (as the last production year of the banknote was stamped in 2001).
The coins are composed of two alloys. The inner circle (plug) is composed of two layers aluminium bronze, and the outer ring is copper-nickel. Hence, giving them the unique two colours; silver outer and gold inner appearance. The diameter of the coins are 26.5 mm, and a mass of 8.7 grams. The coins' edges also have an interrupted serration. The obverse feature the profiles of Andrés Bonifacio and Apolinario Mabini, ('heroes' during the Philippine Revolution). Both men were also featured in the second version of the New Design Series ten peso note, which was first released in 1997.
- BSP Coin Series; On July 10, 2001, BSP issued the 10-piso coin for general circulation to commemorate its 8th year anniversary. It has the profiles of Andrés Bonifacio and Apolinario Mabini in a con-joint or in tandem manner on the obverse side. The reverse side bears the seal of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas which is consistent with the common reverse design of the other six denominations. This has been an additional denomination to the current coin circulation and a replacement for the 10-piso New Design/BSP Series banknote.
- New Generation Currency Coin Series; Issued in 2018, the ten piso coin features a portrait of Apolinario Mabini, the denomination and year of issue on the obverse. The reverse side features the Kapa-kapa (Medinilla magnifica) flower and the current logo of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas.
