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.
