If you search the P1,000 bill on Google, the first on the list would be Wikipedia’s search result.
But instead of “Rodrigo Roa Duterte,” the name on the bill shows “Rodrigo Boa Duterte.” The Wikipedia file was uploaded last August 12, 2020, but it is still live on the website as of September 28, 2020.
A Reddit-user spotted this and then posted it last weekend but the post on the platform has already been taken down.
This is not the first time that Philippine bank notes show an error. The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) recalled P100 notes that misspelled former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo’s surname as “Arrovo.” Only a thousand pieces of the bill were released to the public, which caused the values to increase over the years, especially for collectors.
During the 1980s, another error was seen on the Philippine Eagle on the 50-cent coin. In 2017, P100 bank notes that did not show the image of then-President Manuel Roxas began circulating social media. For BSP’s part, it was because of a rare misprint.
