RENE ADAPON, a numismatist for almost 30 years now.  He collects from stamp, coins, and bills showcasing this time from different women and their advocacy in commemoration of  INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY month.


WOMAN ON STAMP

WOMAN ON PAPER MONEY(Bills)

WOMAN IN COINS

March 8 to be exact is the International Women's Day.  His exhibit started last Monday and will end tomorrow, March 15.  

So glad that I got to see THE FIRST EXHIBIT IN THE PHILIPPINES: THE FIRST WOMAN ON STAMP, COINS and BILLS happened only here in Davao City.  And proudly showcasing a once in a a lifetime information about our great woman with great advocacy, fighting for the rights of woman internationally.

Collections of stamps, coins, and bills way back Spanish colonial period, revolutionary period, American regime, Japanese and Philippine Republic.


STAMP of the PHILIPPINE FIRST WOMAN GENERAL
Heneral Agueda Kahabagan
  

Little did we know that there is a paper money for TANDANG SORA 100 peso bill, was never circulated in Philippine currency due to the fact that the only money(highest income) that being given to the Filipino that time is PHp50.  So they remove the 100 peso bill and make it a CENTAVO(that time sentimos has BIG VALUE) in Philippine currencies.






  
And he had also coins and bills from different countries.





He had a collection of stamps of our two former Ms. Universe.





I've learned so much from him, very educational and informative.  Great collections indeed.  

Have a great time chatting with Mr. Rene Adapon, and he made this shot for me.  Thanks sir for allowing me to have a nice interview with you.

  4. Nice collections. Interesting to read. I didn't realize until now that Tandang Sora was in the bill as far as I can remember she was in the flowerly shaped brown centavos when I was 2 years old and mamera too.
