Great coin. It is a modern coin, though, so its value is low. The thing that gives it value is its silver content.
Your 1947 Philippines peso contains 0.579 troy ounces of silver. Using a web site like kitco.com, we find the current price of silver is $18 US dollars per ounce. The base value of your coin is then 0.579 times 18 = $10 dollars. But tomorrow the value of silver will be different. Look it up.
If your coin is in superb shape, like the coin in our picture, with plenty of mint luster and eye appeal, you can add a few dollars to the silver value to account for coin collector demand. For the pictured coin, I'd add about $8.
