After the ‘faceless’ P100 bills gone viral last week, another man had to deal with the confusion when he was given a P100 bill that shows 2 faces of late President Manuel Roxas.
The money was given to him as change in a market in Tandang Sora, Quezon City and he was shocked to see that the P100 bill had a ‘doble kara’ face of Roxas.
Aside from the face of late President Manuel Roxas in front, another face of him was seen on the back side of the bill, on top of the picture of Mayon Volcano.
“Bibili po kaming magkakaibigan nu’ng fountain, paputok sa palengke then binayad namin ‘yung P500 bill. Nung pagbili namin, ‘yun ‘yung sinukli sa ’min. Akala namin manipis lang ‘yung pera, bumabakat lang ‘yung nasa harap. Hindi naman siya peke, tunay talaga,” says Emmanuel Constantino, the person who got the bill.
The Facebook post of Constantino of the ‘doble kara’ bill gathered 5,000 likes on Facebook as of the moment.
Some commenters also tried to buy the bill for P200 up to P2,000 but he refused to do so, stating that he will just keep the money as souvenir.
Just this Friday, it can be recalled that Yves Osorio withdrew money from the bank and was also shocked to see the P100 bill without the face of Manuel Roxas.
“Out of the 33 bills siyempre ako pa ‘yung nakakuha ng nine bills na ‘yun. I was not expecting,” said Osorio.
Osorio also have no plans of returning the money to the bank.
“Some of my friends said itago ko daw kasi it might have some value in the future daw,” says Osorio.
The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas previously released a statement regarding these misprinted peso bills, stating that these bills can cause confusion and bad effect in the county’s commerce.
BSP also admitted the fact that they had encountered a mechanical error during the printing of the bills.
The error was due to the new machines bought by the central bank that was not calibrated accordingly, according to ABS-CBN News.
The advise of BSP to those who got the misprinted bills is to change it to the bank as soon as possible.
