Is the man called Figueroa, who is credited with the design of the Phil-Am coins, not a Filipino? Thanks for any clarification.

Figueroa was the person who immediately came to mind when I questioned whether Bayani Rumbaoa was the first. However, Figueroa is credited as being a designer rather than an engraver. Again, I hope someone can clarify whether the Manila Bulletin article is factually correct that Rumbaoa is the first Filipino engraver.

Actually, the article is dumb founded and lacks research and knowledge of history. The article should be questioned. Actually, after reading our history. There were other prominent engravers in the Spanish-Philippine coinage during the operation of the Manila Mint under the Spanish government. Unknown to many, there were 2 distinct Manila mints established in the Philippines. The first one was created during the Spanish period and the second was during the American occupation. But due to the poor records, much of the credit were neither not preserve or forgotten. One of the famous families whom were recognized as medal and coin designers during those periods were the Zamoras. If the Manila Bulletin article was just written recently, how could it refute the fact about Melecio Figueroa when in fact the USPI coinage was designed in 1901 and 1902. If Rumbaboa still lives today then the author of this article probably refers to more recent issues. I think I should write the author regarding this because this might cause a terrible implication to the knowledge foundation of new collectors and other beginners of this hobby. Do you have an email address of the author? Thank you for making us aware.
