PHILIPPINE NUMISMATIC AND ANTIQUARIAN SOCIETY FEUD REPORTED

[I came across this note on the Filipino Numismatist web
site this week.  Are any of our readers familiar with the
goings-on at the Philippine Numismatic and Antiquarian
Society? -Editor]

Recently, I was surprised to know that the Philippine
Numismatic and Antiquarian Society, the oldest numismatic
organization in the Philippines is bombarded with political
controversy. Two factions emerged, a newly set of elected
officers facilitated the establishment of a new governance
mostly composed of younger members while the other faction,
the incumbent officers, who declined to submit to the majority,
remained and decided to continue their own version of the
organization.

So now, there are two Philippine Numismatic and Antiquarian
Societies. Both are competing against each other and have
concluded their respective auctions both on same set of dates.
The incident started when last December, the organization
held its annual election. Majority of the officers who won
the election elected their pick for presidency. However, the
minority of the group did not accept the mandate. Thus, started
the creation of two organizations. The first one is headed by
Tomas De Guzman, Jr. or “Temboy” as he is known to fellow
numismatists. On the other hand, Atty. William Villareal
leads the other faction and installed himself as president
otherwise.
