This set has (almost) everything a numbers collector would want:

Low Numbers: 000001 - 000010
Solid Numbers: 111111 - 999999
Million Number Note: 1000000
Ascending & Descending Ladders:  123456 & 654321

I guess the only thing it's missing are the "Hundred Thousand" Notes:  100000 - 900000

This set just sold on eBay for $160 USD.  For reference, 1 Philippines Peso is worth about 2.41 cents Canadian.  Face value is 0.0241 CAD/Peso * 20 Peso * 22 notes = $10.61 CAD, so there is still a significant premium for the fancy numbers.

Being only a six digit number really must keep the price down. The only one comparable to canadian fancy numbers is the 1-million note. Think what people would pay here for say, 7123456 or 7333333, or 7000001.  :-/ Hardly worth a second glance.

Now, the 8-digit American notes on the other hand make a joke out of our serial numbers  :P

A set like this, all same denomination - I think would have been hand picked by someone on the "inside".  it is too perfect and complete.
BUT still really cool.  8-)

There is a constant supply of these solid numbers in Philippines from bank. Current series  Philippines solid numbers and fancy numbers banknotes are extremely common and does not worth much in value. Supply too much and reduces the demand for them. There are a number of ebay sellers supplying them regularly. In other words, there is no shortage of Philippines solid numbers banknote. For beginner collector, it is good to start with them. The other countries' inexpensive solids are from India. ;D
