Best Answer

Before 1946 the Philippines were a U.S. colony (or protectorate, if you prefer). Coins were minted in the U.S. bearing both names, usually matching their American counterparts in denomination (in centavos instead of cents, of course) and size. Many were made in Denver or San Francisco and bear a mint mark from one of those 2 facilities.

What is silver content in 1944 Filipinas 20 centavos?

You are asking about a coin from the Philippines issued when it was a commonwealth administered by the United States. You would need to know the denomination (1,5,10, 20 and 50 centavo coins were produced in 1944), as well as the condition, in order to get an accurate value. Note that the 1 centavo coin is bronze, the 5 centavo coin is a copper-nickel-zinc alloy, and the 10,20 and 50 centavo coins are 75% silver.
