  • 1859 2 Centavos - Isabella II
    Philippines Spanish Colony

    Brichaut Fantasy Coins (circa 1866 - 1893)

    "In 1951 Tomas Dasí referenced a 1901 La Gazette Numismatique article in which began a series discussing fantasy and fraudulent coins. Dasí went on to explain that the likely manufacturer of many of these was Auguste Brichaut who is also identified in Forrer's Dictionary of Medallists as the designer of many of the very coins mentioned in the 1901 La Gazette Numismatique article and specifically describes him as a producer of "so called Piéces de fantaisie". Two pieces specifically identified in the 1901 article as fantasy pieces are the 1855 Philippine 5 pesetas "pattern" and the 1859 Philippine 2 centavos "pattern". Brichaut also co-published articles in Revue Belge de Numismatique circa 1870 - 1890 about souvenir coins of 1870-1871 France."

  • History of the 1904 One Peso
    "The total issue of Philippine silver coins made at Philadelphia in 1904 was 11,355 sets. None of these were struck specifically for circulation.
    Sold at the mint throughout the year was a total of 1,355 sets. These were struck on order and were regular Proof issues. Another 10,000 sets were officially ordered by Farran Zerbe (widely known numismatist, later a president of the American Numismatic Association) to be placed for sale at the Philippine Exhibit held as part of the Louisiana Purchase Exposition in St. Louis during 1904. The first striking of his order for 10,000 set may have been proof like in quantity and appearance, but the majority of them were struck as Uncirculated coins. Of the 10,000 sets delivered for sale at St. Louis, there remained unsold 6,746 sets. There were sent to the Philippine Treasury in Manila where another 500 sets were sold; the rest were placed in circulation as ordinary coins".
